About the Event

MUSIC:

Earl Okin is one of the world’s finest Jazz singers. In addition, he is probably the finest performer of Bossa Nova

outside of Brazil. Though occasionally performing with a trio, he normally performs solo, accompanying himself at the guitar or piano as most appropriate for the song. Last but not least, he’s renowned for his legendary ‘vocal trumpet’ solos.

Based in London, Earl has given concerts around the world in theatres, clubs and festivals, and regularly performs at London’s premier Jazz Club, Ronnie Scott’s and cabaret and concert venues such as Les Crazy Coqs and the Royal Albert Hall. Over his career, he has worked alongside such legends as Adelaide Hall, Benny Carter, Stephane Grappelly, Barney Kessel and Dame Cleo Laine among others. To sum him up – the perfect sophisticated Jazz vocal cabaret! Earl Okin is one of the world’s finest Jazz singers.

"You are quite a genius you are - you have managed to find a niche in Cabaret I have never seen nor heard before - you are simply brilliant. Hard to categorize - musician/comedian or what - I guess you are anything the audience wants to categorize you as long as they book you. One must see you in person to "get you" - even though your musicianship is fantastic!!! Your guitar and especially piano playing is thrilling in all the genres! One thing I gleaned from your performance is that one must "experience you" - live - "where you live - you need an audience! Those little nuances you have in your "kit" needs people to experience them.." BUDDY BREGMAN (Legendary producer/arranger of the Ella Fitzgerald 'Songbook' series, who has worked with just about everybody, from Sammy Davis Jr. to Bing Crosby)
