A night of great music and improvisation from the Jazznights Ensemble with special guest Earl Okin. Trumpet-impersonating virtuoso, guitarist, pianist and reluctant sex symbol Earl Okin is probably the best performer of Bossa Nova outside of Brazil. He is also one of the world’s finest songwriters in a variety of genres from Pop/Rock to Jazz, from Bossa Nova to Ballads. Earl was first signed to the same company as The Beatles, recording at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in 1967, and during that period his songs were covered by stars including Helen Shapiro, Cilla Black and Georgie Fame. Earl is a comedic genius too, having begun at the Comic Strip alongside Rik Mayall, French & Saunders, Nigel Planer etc., and has been a headline act on the unforgiving UK alternative comedy circuit for decades, highly respected by all his fellow performers, young and old. Based in London, Earl has given concerts around the world in theatres, clubs and festivals, and regularly performs at Ronnie Scott’s and cabaret and concert venues such as Les Crazy Coqs and the Royal Albert Hall. Free entry. Bar snacks available.
