Sam Braysher featuring Annie Majin: Kurt Weill and the American Songbook

Sam Braysher’s new project explores the work of Kurt Weill, a fascinating composer who lies at the intersection of European classical music, jazz, opera and American musical theatre.

The London based jazz saxophonist, a regular performer at jazz clubs across Europe, has received international acclaim for his warm, delicate sound and deep knowledge of the standard repertoire and American Songbook.

He is joined by two rising stars of London’s thriving jazz scene. Annie Majin's charming, powerful voice is inspired by Barbara Streisand and the sounds of classic Broadway shows. Hungarian pianist Matyas Gayer has played accompanist to jazz legends Eddie Henderson, Jesse Davis and others.

Expect to hear classic songs such as Mack The Knife, My Ship and September Song in addition to hidden gems from the Weill catalogue and music by adjacent American Broadway composers like Rodgers & Hammerstein, Gershwin and Harold Arlen.

'Braysher's cool, modernist twist on old songs is just superb' Simon Adams, Jazz Journal

'The warm-toned young London saxophonist Sam Braysher is a prize-winning investigator of the early recordings and published music of Jerome Kern, Nat King Cole, Duke Ellington and many others, and imagines a new jazz closely attuned to an old world' John Fordham, The Guardian
