Theo Jackson is an exciting British jazz vocalist, pianist and songwriter, who first came to prominence at London’s 606 Jazz Club a few years back. Since then, he has continued to develop his craft, and performed at a number of prestigious venues and jazz festivals, including the EFG London Jazz Festival. He will perform songs from Shoeless And The Girl, his second full-length CD, that consists of eight original compositions, and two Wayne Shorter compositions – Footprints and Wild Flower – both of which have been re-imagined by Jackson, who added his own lyrics. The songs themselves draw on the best traditions of jazz, classic singer-songwriters, with hints of Joni Mitchell thrown into the mix. Songs like Lonesome George and Love And A Shoestring, suggest that from a lyrical perspective, Jackson is drawn to people who are struggling to fit in with society. The title track deals with the loneliness of two characters, “but it also a sort of parable,” the singer reveals. “The idea being that despite our seemingly vast differences, we all still share so much and that therefore none of us are truly alone in anything.” "One of the most interesting jazz vocalists and composers to emerge on the British scene in recent years" THE DAILY TELEGRAPH
