Two of the finest Young Jazz Pianists Unite (Premiere)
Hampstead Jazz Club is proud to present two of Europe’s finest young keyboard maestros together on stage for the first time. Gliding their way through the Great American Songbook, this dazzling duo blur the lines between Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans and Art Tatum.
Over the course of the last few years, Joe Webb has built a serious reputation as one of the most versatile musicians the business, working with everyone from Will Young to the Brand New Heavies. Jamie Safir has taken a more traditional musical route, spending much of his time playing with Kansas Smitty’s House Band in between regular appearances with an illustrious list of jazzers including Ian Shaw, Barb Jungr and the Ronnie Scott’s All Stars.
Their reputations already speak for themselves, but together, Jamie Safir and Joe Webb sound even greater than the sum of their individual parts.
A very special premiere not to be missed!!
Join one of the most exciting pianists of the moment in his personal tribute to the likes of Art Tatum, Oscar Peterson and Teddy Wilson. Joe Webb is the pianist for the Kansas Smitty’s House Band and is a regular featured performer from Ronnie Scott’s to the Wigmore Hall.
