This show has fresh, original jazz-based songs to set your heart soaring. The writing of Ben Cox & Jamie Safiruddin is built around beautiful harmonies and melodies and is attracting attention across the networks. Played on Jamie Cullum & the JazzFM playlist, you get two great songwriters who bring different things to the party. For tonight's show we travel from Gershwin to Carole King, Cole Porter to Paul Simon, and Jerome Kern to Joni Mitchell and not forgetting the inimitable Tony Bennett & Bill Evans. With just piano and voice, explore the world of the song, inhabit the collaboration of minds and hear and breathe the stories that sparked the creativity in the writing of the songs you know and love. Whether you listen to the lyric or the melody, you will be transported deep into the world of song writing for the evening. And brand new originals too.
'Round & Round' is the second album from The Ben Cox Band released on October 17th in Soho. Ben & Jamie have played all the great Jazz clubs around London and in the UK as well as Cheltenham, Scarborough and Southport Jazz festivals. but you now get to meet the two songwriters in the intimate setting of Crazy Coqs..
