You can’t keep a great Music Maker down! We didn’t have to ask Liane to return. After her previous sold out shows at Piano Smithfield, she’s been asking us to book her again for what she describes as, “A wonderful venue and such a great audience. I had a ball. I loved it”
So how could we refuse? Liane Carroll is back at Piano Smithfield .
Liane is one of the UK’s greatest singer/pianists, who with her infectious personality brings Entertainment with a capital “E”to her much requested, following her sensational sold- out concert in our Jazz Cabaret launch series in Autumn 2021 and in our Jazz Singers in Spring 2022
“Music commentators are also unanimous in their praise.
“One of the most stylistically flexible pianists around, with a marvellous, slightly husky singing voice" (The Observer).
"A powerful, soul-inflected performer with an Ella Fitzgerald-like improv athleticism and an emotional frankness on ballads" (The Guardian)
liane’s first four albums all enjoyed four-starred reviews, and, “Ballads” received ***** from Jazz Journal. "Seaside", won CD of the year athe 2015 British Jazz awards.
A winner of the British Jazz and Parliamentary Jazz Awards she received the 2016 Gold award from the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors.
She is a regular performer in the great jazz music venues, including not only staring in our Jazz Divas series, but also opening the 2021 series in September at The Pheasantry on the King’s Road; with Claire Martin in their Two’s Company concert at St John’s Smith Square in the EFG London Jazz Festivals; sold-out performances at The Crazy Coqs and in summer festival performances across the country.
