Jeremy Sassoon’s Ray Charles Project

Scarborough Jazz Festival 2019
20-22 September 2019
Saturday Evening Session

Pianist and vocalist Jeremy Sassoon’s 17-piece band plays music based around Ray Charles' work with his big band and has the perfect blend of well-known hits (Georgia on my mind, Hit the road Jack, Unchain my heart) and rarer songs that only the hardened Ray Charles fan would recognise (The Jealous Kind, Hide nor Hair, Feel so Bad).

The spectacular arrangements were done by Iain Dixon (BBC Big Band, Michael Brecker, Joni Mitchell, Bryan Ferry) who MD's the show. The Ray Charles Project also features renowned guitarist Mike Walker (Impossible Gentlemen, Mike Gibbs, George Russell) .

‘Extrovert and confident, he really gave the Ray Charles song-book a thorough going-over, bringing out all of Ray’s gritty blues feeling with a romping response’  London Evening News

‘The show by Jeremy Sassoon and his band at this year's Wigan Jazz Festival did everything that we hoped for and much more. The pace of the performance was perfect, every tune was superbly performed thrilling the packed audience and there was a real buzz about the place’ (Ian Darrington, Wigan Jazz Festival)
