Sarah Jane Morris: Sweet Little Mystery


With her melliferous delivery and four active range, Sarah Jane Morris’s delivery of the songs of John Martyn are full of strong emotion and passion. Touring with one of the coolest guitarist, Tony Remy and Tim Cansfield, this show will be another significant tribute to the late singer/songwriter.

“arresting” – FINANCIAL TIMES“

Morris’s sweeping range and soul roots warm Martyn’s sometimes bleakly tender love songs, and the wild, hard-rocking, vocally imploring finale is a tour de force” – THE GUARDIAN”

One of the finest of improvisational jazz voices and most fluid of intricate guitarists have joined their supple skills together to create a supreme homage to one of folk/jazz’s more colourful personalities….they breathe new life with their astute interpretations ofsongs created by maverick influencer John Martyn on this lovingly curated album.” – DAILY EXPRESS (*****)

“Like spooning musical medicine into the ear, the beating heart of this exquisitely crafted album lies in the subtle performances by Morris and her ensemble which elevate these bitter-sweet songs into epic, ethereal mysteries” – DAILY STAR (*****)
