Liane Carroll returns to Piano Smithfield in our JBGB Jazz Singers 2022 Series
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 return for this concert at Piano Smithfield, following her sensational sold- out concert in our Jazz Cabaret launch series in Autumn 2021
“What a wonderful venue and such a great audience. I had a ball. I loved it” – Liane Carroll
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 at the 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.
And to give you a big flavour of what’s in store, here is Liane in a fabulous streamed concert in trio format, from Ronnie Scott’s in 2021
