‘Exhilarating!’ London Jazz News. Jeremy Sassoon has won huge acclaim over recent years with his astonishingly authentic homage to Ray Charles. Together with his drum-tight quintet, Sassoon swings his way through the Ray Charles songbook on a magical journey that goes from Hit The Road Jack and What’d I Say to Unchain My Heart and Georgia On My Mind. Whether he’s playing R&B, soul, country or blues, Jeremy Sassoon somehow manages to get to the very heart of Brother Ray’s unique music.
