Described by Jazz FM as 'One of the brightest stars in the Jazz piano galaxy', Sam Leak has made quite a mark on the UK scene. With accolades in MOJO magazine through sparkling reviews in the Guardian to recordings with some of the finest musicians in New York, Sam has established himself as one of Britain’s leading pianists. As well as lead singer with the The Cinematic Orchestra the remarkable Heidi Vogel includes work with the likes of Bobby McFerrin, Isaac Hayes, Soweto Kinch, and Chick Corea on a truly impressive cv. Tonight these two get together to celebrate the life and work of the iconic US vocalist Betty Carter.
“Sam Leak…astonishing” The Wire; "Sam Leak...an artist of comparable promise...a subtle storyteller who keeps the grooves and colours changing." John Fordham, The Guardian; “Vogel’s voice is an extraordinarily rich and complex instrument, one that you can easily fall in love with” Jazzwise Magazine
