Sarah-jane Morris In Concert With Tony Remy & Tim Cansfield at Bulls Head Barnes
Sarah-Jane Morris is the British soul, jazz and r&b singer who topped the UK pop charts with The Communards ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’ and then eloquently and joyously sidestepped the mainstream ever after. “Those in the know rate her as one of the world’s great jazz-soul vocalists of the past twenty years and more…….” Vogue Italia. For over 25 years of a unique career, Morris has steered by her own star and that independence has brought her a devoted audience, inspired by her belief in the power of song to change hearts and minds. That belief inspired “Bloody Rain”, the ambitious new collection of love-songs, tributes, warnings and protests that she regards as the best album of her life and is dedicated to the people of Africa and the music of that continent that has inspired so many artists. She is currently doing some intimate shows accompanied by the virtuoso guitarists Tony Remy and Tim Cansfield to promote this album and to perform her favourite hits. “One of the most outstanding contemporary singers this country has produced…it’s her deep, earthy, soul-driven sexuality and the emotional resonance of her voice that produces comparisons with Janis Joplin, Bessie Smith and Sarah Vaughan……” Get Rhythm. Tony Remy is one of the world's most exciting guitar players of any genre. His hard-edged rhythmically driven approach is enriched with jazz intuition and bluesy soul. Live on stage, his relentless invention and incredible raw energy can set the crowd on fire. His touring and recording credits include: Courtney Pine, Jason Rebello, Julian Joseph, Freddy Hubbard, Omar, Simply Red, Annie Lennox, & Incognito among many others. Tim Cansfield was born in Trinidad. A self-taught musician, this enigmatic and self-effacing genius is the first choice of many recording artists, including the Bee Gees, Steve Winwood, Elton John, Chaka Khan, Tina Turner, Whitney Houston and many more.
