Paul Ryan and Jamie Safir

Tickets: £20.00 Seat at a shared Table for 4 /£15.00 Seat – No Table
Back again for another stellar show featuring a host of new material for a riveting night of live music!
This show will be one full long set without a break!
Paul Ryan, a favourite vocalist of the late jazz critic Jack Massarik, joins the brilliant young pianist Jamie Safir for an intimate evening of selections from the Great American Songbook – some familiar, others less so. Paul’s relaxed style evokes the golden age of the great crooners but his rich baritone is very much his own.
In recent years, he has performed in France and Spain as well as at some of the most prestigious London venues including Ronnie Scott’s, the Hippodrome Casino, the Crazy Coqs, Pizza Express Soho and the Pheasantry in Chelsea, where he recorded his recent album, “Blame It On My Youth” on the Bell Note label, featuring his frequent collaborator Kenny Clayton and his Trio.
Alongside his long performing career he has also distinguished himself as a writer on the arts with a special interest in French culture which has brought him into contact with such musical figures as Juliette Greco, Yves Montand, Jane Birkin and Michel Legrand. In 2008, the French Government awarded him the rank of Officier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.
“Ryan sings with a knowledge and understanding of the nuances and wit of the great lyricists…each song a narrative…personal and poignant, opening up a thousand memories.” – JAZZWISE
“An evening with Paul Ryan is a rare treat. He has the sublime gift of putting an audience at their ease. His songs are well-chosen, his delivery is a delight. Everything is guaranteed to make you feel better.” – Sir Michael Palin
Jamie is one of the brightest jazz talents to emerge in recent years and has worked regularly with such major singers as Ian Shaw, Barb Jungr and Elaine Delmar. For this show, Paul and Jamie draw inspiration from the historic collaboration between Tony Bennett and Bill Evans for a very personal collection of jazz-inflected standards.
