British soul, jazz and R&B singer Sarah Jane Morris, with Tony Rémy and Marcus Bonfanti, interpret singer and songwriter John Martyn’s canon of music live at Crazy Coqs, to pay homage to a musical maverick who influenced a generation of his peers, friends and fans alike.
This touching tribute shines a light on the sublime genius of John Martyn, a restless, often self-destructive artist whose unique voice and music are both breathtakingly bold and achingly tender in their beauty. This will also be an evening Soul and Blues involving original songs and reworked classics with Sarah Jane’s unique, magical flavour, enhanced by the soulful, melodic guitar work of her wonderful guitarists.
Sarah-Jane Morris is the British soul, jazz and r&b singer who topped the UK pop charts for months in 1986 (with The Communards’ disco version of Don’t Leave Me This Way) and then eloquently and joyously sidestepped the mainstream ever after. Morris’s magnificent soul voice and emotional power would have brought multiple Grammy awards and celebrity status to most singers with her charisma and drive.
