The legendary Earl Okin is one of the finest Jazz and Bossa Nova singer/musicians around, just as popular in Brazil and Australia, (not to mention all over mainland Europe), as in the UK.

His career has involved him performing at every major venue in London from The Royal Albert Hall to The Palladium etc., and alongside such Jazz giants as Stephane Grappelly to Benny Carter, Milt Hinton to Barney Kessel etc., and such Cabaret legends as Barbara Cook and Michael Feinstein. He has, of-course, been performing at Ronnie Scott's since the 1970s.

He is also one of this country's finest songwriters, so, alongside classic songs by Gershwin, Ellington, Jobim etc., you may well hear one or two of Okin's own classics!

For those of you who only know him from his 'other' career as a headline comedian, don't worry.

There may well be the odd moment or two of his very own brand of humour along the way!

Put the package together and the show is simply unmissable!

Kenny Clayton and Paul Ryan

As pianist, composer and arranger, Kenny Clayton has long been of Britain’s most sought-after musicians and, in a career spanning more than fifty years, has been musical director for a raft of international stars including Dick Haymes, Petula Clark, Matt Monro and Shirley Bassey. His exceptional musicianship led Tribune to acclaim the “quietly authentic genius” of his playing. Paul Ryan, noted for the impeccable phrasing and elegant wit of his delivery, has long combined a performing career with his work as a writer (publishing several books on film and photography). His artistic achievements have been recognised by the French Government which has twice decorated him as Chevalier and now Officier of the Order of Arts and Letters
