    Charismatic jazz singer Kevin Fitzsimmons takes a break from starring in the big  band concert ‘Sinatra Sequins & Swing - The Capitol Years Live! to bring his brilliant  Bennett - To - Buble: The American Songbook At Its Best!  show  to us following eight sell outs of this very show at Ronnie Scott’s. The show itself is a clever mix  of standards covered by Messrs Bennett, Buble & co., so expect songs like: Don’t Get Around Much Any More, Fever, I’ve Grown Accustomed To Her Face, Steppin’ Out, re-styled with taste and verve.  With Kevin is his unstoppably swinging band, described by JAZZWISE Magazine in review of his album as “the cream of UK’s straight-ahead jazz musicians”. So come along and hear what all the fuss is about and enjoy award winning pianist  Leon Greening (headliner at festivals including Ronnie Scott’s International Piano Trio Festival, “Catch him when you can” says Jazz Journal).  The 2015 ‘Young Jazz Musician Of The Year’, upcoming bassist Adam King; respected jazz drummer Matt Fishwick “Impressive”- The Observer, “Outstanding drummer” – Jazzwise and Leo Richardson an upcoming saxophonist marked out as a one to watch, who has already hosted the Late Show at Ronnie Scott’s.
