You can’t keep a great musician down! It’s a further return to PizzaExpress Jazz Club by singer – pianist Liane Carroll, one of our outstanding British jazz greats and perhaps the most appreciated and in-demand musician appearing for our discerning regulars.
Long since her recovery from the dreaded Covid pandemic, which forced the cancellation of her Autumn 2022 concert, which led to her triumphant recovery Christmas party concert in December, Liane returns for this Springtime 2024 concert with another “dose” of her personal antidote to sadness and despondency. After her previous sold-out shows, she’s delighted we’ve invited her to return again by popular demand.
Music commentators are unanimous in their praise.
“Transcendent vocal and piano technique, with heart stopping emotion and soul bearing power." — Peter Quinn Jazzwise
“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 4-start 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 the Jazz Divas series, but also opening the 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 Crazy Coqs; Piano Smithfield; with Ian Shaw at Dean Street and in summer festival performances across the country.
Don’t delay in booking your tickets. You are guaranteed a great Dean Street evening. Join us for another uplifting concert by the wonder that is Liane Carroll.
