David Newton, the UK’s most highly regarded and record breaking award winning jazz pianist, (13 times winner of Best Pianist in the British Jazz Awards), arrives at The Other Palace Studio for a unique concert of solo piano playing on the Studio’s superb Steinway instrument.
Whilst the most in demand accompanist for singers and instrumentalists alike, and the band member most often selected to appear with jazz greats, David is his own soloist and creative master. He is not only able to swing with a hard driving left hand, but also perform delightful heartfelt ballads evoking the most romantic feelings.
His solo recordings of “Tea for Two”, “Sweet Lorraine”, “They Can’t Take That Away From Me”, “Have You Met Miss Jones” & “Stompin’ At The Savoy”, among many others, are already collectors items.
This will be a must attend concert, not only for pianists and jazz aficionados, but also for music lovers who just want to hear great music performed by a great musician.
