Sam Jackson: Sharp & Flat – Piano and Fender Rhodes
“Sam takes inspiration from across the spectrum and creates music you’ll fall in love with. His album is on constant repeat in the car!”
– Festival Director.
Following rave reviews for his album, Sharp & Flat, acclaimed composer and pianist Sam Jackson presents a unique music performance on piano and looped Fender Rhodes. An intimate set blending jazz, classical and traditional styles. Fresh music that is spellbinding and energised in equal measure performed by a master of mood and a veteran of some of the biggest names in theatre.
“Fuses jazz and modern classical music in a compelling fashion. Jackson’s subtly evocative compositions have an intrinsic beauty to them and his virtuosic playing will remind many of the acclaimed American jazz pianist Brad Mehldau.”
