Claire Martin with Rob Barron - A Gershwin Holiday

Friday December 6

Claire Martin
with Rob Barron
- A Gershwin Holiday

Crazy Coqs at Brasserie Zedel, Shelton Street, Soho, London W1F 7ED

Claire Martin, the UK’s greatest and most awarded jazz singer, returns to Crazy Coqs, accompanied by the much in demand, ace piano style of Rob Barron, for an early Christmas Holiday evening with the music of the 20th Century song master, George Gershwin.

Claire, awarded the OBE for her services to jazz, is a much-appreciated international singer, equally at home in sold-out concerts on the big stages, such as the Proms at the Royal Albert Hall, with a symphony orchestra, as well as regular appearances at intimate, top jazz clubs including Ronnie Scott’s and The Pheasantry, with her trio.

She has a wealth of major recordings with top musicians and has in the last few years created a successful summer jazz festival at Iford Manor .

And here is Claire, singing in trio format, the title track from her recent album “Believin’ It”

Rob Barron, an outstanding jazz pianist, and professor of Jazz at The Guildhall School of Music, also performs internationally.  Not only a much-requested accompanist, but also as a piano soloist and with his own trio on major stages such as St John’s Smith Square and most recently in top jazz venues, with his creation of music from the great Leonard Bernstein. His most recent album has achieved significant critical applause.

One of the most creative and imaginative pianists of his generation” Jazzwise

Here’s Rob, with his trio, playing “Pure Imagination” -just delightful!


This concert highlights the wonderful music of America’s most successful song writer, George Gershwin.

Sit back and relax in the company of these and many more musical gems, such as

“Nice Work If You Can Get It,” “But Not For Me,” “Fascinating Rhythm,”

“Foggy Day,” “How Long Has This Been Going On?”

“Summertime”, and “S’Wonderful”

Nice work- and you can get it by getting to Crazy Coqs for this magical evening with Claire and Rob.
