Cool and swingin' London UK cats and kitties MUST to put this on their date slate. Actor Jake Broder is laying the new and regrooved Zam Zam Room, his beautiful Lord Buckley evocation on the populance at two very cool Soho summer venues: the Pizza Express Jazz Club and the legendary Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club Dig what the Printheads committed inkwise:
"PICK OF THE WEEK" - THE GUARDIAN
TIME OUT CRITICS' CHOICE
"STUNNING... EXTRAORDINARY" - EVENING STANDARD
In the tradition of Jon Hendricks mixed with Robin Williams by way of Mahatma Gandhi, Jake Broder brings back the rantings of Lord Buckley, the high Sahib of the beat generation.
Accompanying Broder will be David Tughan in various guises and some very serious jazz cats. On the drums: Leo 'Two Sugs' Taylor. On the bass: 'The Boss' Tom Herbert. And the gate at the 88's is 'Professor' Alex K Hutton. Bear witness to Lord Buckley's legendary nightclub act, in town for a limited time only.
To swing or not to swing? ...THAT is the hang up!
