Tomorrow’s Warriors presents Sultan Stevenson
30 June, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm£5 – £10
Pianist Sultan Stevenson is one of the fastest emerging young artists on the London jazz scene. His trio is already established as an outfit to catch when billed to play live and is being tipped for success on national and international stages.
Aged only 20, Sultan is an alumni of the famed Tomorrow’s Warriors jazz artist development programme, and now a member of its Music Leader Faculty. His music combines elements of the African-American jazz tradition as well as his own Caribbean cultural experience. His approach to composition and playing has already been compared to that of McCoy Tyner and Esbjörn Svensson and, over the past year, his Trio has played standout gigs at Jazz re:freshed, the Vortex and the Jazz Café where the band opened for the great Billy Cobham. Their Pizza Express gig during the 2021 EFG London Jazz Festival was a sell-out.
