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.

In March of 2023 Sultan released his debut album ‘Faithful One’ under Whirlwind Recordings, the album helped to earn Sultan a parliamentary jazz award for best newcomer of the year. Sultan launched the album at a sold-out headline Jazz Café show. Sultan is currently touring his music in the UK and beyond. He is considered as one of the brightest stars of his generation.


Sultan Stevenson - Piano; Jacob Gryn - Bass; Joel Waters - Drums; 

PLEASE NOTE: We were advised on 28th February that Josh Short (trumpet) is unavailable because of illness so the performance will continue with a trio. We wish him a swift recovery.

“His way of placing silences and making a simple four-note lick grow into something significant showed an incipient master at work.”– The Telegraph

“The album exudes calm and warmth, just like the man himself.” – Jazzwise Magazine

“He also has a mature awareness of the value of space and silence, of still centers among hurricanes of sound” – All About Jazz
