Jazz Views

Pianist Sultan Stevenson is a fast-emerging and exciting young jazz artist. He takes the stage with his brilliant trio to perform music from his 2023 debut album Faithful One (Whirlwind Recordings).

A Londoner with roots in the Caribbean, Sultan is a product of both Tomorrow’s Warriors and the Julian Joseph Jazz Academy. He is influenced by the work of many of the greats of the jazz piano, including McCoy Tyner, Geri Allen, Herbie Hancock and Kenny Kirkland. He also has a deep appreciation of Black gospel music, bebop, swing, reggae, funk and hip-hop, as well as the history of Africa and the African diaspora.

Faithful One helped to earn Sultan a parliamentary jazz award for best newcomer of the year. Heritage and faith emerge as central themes throughout, as Sultan illustrates the significance of his beliefs in his music. 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. Don’t miss this opportunity to see one of the brightest stars of his generation live.

…a vivid, dramatic piece of work, melodic and free from dissonance, replete with both light and shade, and infused with the strength and confidence of a far more seasoned musician. Jazzwise on Faithful One
