Jay Rayner * JAZZ

May 21, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 5:15 pm


Jay Rayner — restaurant critic for The Observer, jazz pianist and One Show foodie — brings singer Pat Gordon Smith, bassist Robert Rickenberg and saxophonist Dave Lewis to spend an afternoon playing tunes by Johnny Mercer, Harold Arlen, Blossom Dearie and Dave Frishberg from the Great American food and drink songbook. In the first half, he regales us with My Dining Hell, telling stories about the best and worst restaurants he’s ever eaten in, and reading some of the worst reviews his own work has ever received.

“The big, bearded bloke from MasterChef? Is he a jazz pianist too?..Rayner, a restaurant critic and boulevardier, is the perfect communicator – sidling up to his audience with a ragbag of jokes and family anecdotes.. he conveys the sheer joy of playing and exploring the music he loves” – Times.
£25, £18, £12 Concessions available
