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 a rising star of London’s thriving jazz scene: Annie Majin, whose charming, powerful voice is inspired by Barbara Streisand and the sounds of classic Broadway shows. The all-star rhythm section comprises Hungarian pianist Matyas Gayer (Eddie Henderson, Jim Rotondi), in-demand bassist Ferg Ireland (Kansas Smitty’s, Georgia Cecile) and ultra swinging drummer Steve Brown. 

Expect to hear new arrangements of classic songs such as “My Ship”, ”Lost in the Stars” 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.

I can’t think of another alto saxophonist with a sound quite like Sam Braysher’s” – **** Dave Gelly, The Observer

“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
