About the Event
Earl Okin has been a legend in both the jazz clubs and comedy clubs of Britain for over 40 years and - after eighteen months of Covid cancellations! - at last comes to The Jazz Centre UK as part of his 75th birthday celebrations which culminate at the Royal Albert Hall. Praised for his singing, his guitar and piano playing, his love of fine repertoire (and samba!) - as well as his unique gift for poking gentle fun at the music (and himself) - Earl is a sellout wherever he appears, and his 'mouth-trumpet' is the most unique sound in British jazz. His career has taken him from intimate clubs like Ronnie's and the Pizza Express to international tours with Sir Paul McCartney's 'Wings'and brought him his justifiable reputation as a legend of Britain's jazz scene.
"It's a hard task - perhaps impossible - to categorize Earl Okin but really there is no need because he is unique" (Alexander Stiller, Rye International Jazz Festival 2021)
"One of the funniest man I've ever seen in Comedy clubs - and the greatest musician too!" (Mark Kass/CEO, The Jazz Centre UK, 2021)
