Soul jazz diva Sarah Jane Morris released Sweet Little Mystery, an album of songs by Scottish singer-songwriter John Martyn, in 2019 - a joint project between Sarah Jane and long term collaborator and guitarist Tony Remy. Together they pay homage to the sublime genius of the late John Martyn - a restless, often self-destructive artist, whose unique voice and music is both breathtakingly bold and achingly tender in its beauty.
Sarah Jane and Tony completely re-imagine John Martyns' songs, retaining their original hypnotic fragility, with her voice matching the emotional and musical range of his and Tony’s arrangements and grooves, helping her voice create new and illuminating versions of the music. These are fresh and invigorating re-interpretations that make you listen anew to familiar tunes.
The performance, part of a show directed by comedian and activist Mark Thomas, will also include unreleased footage of John Martyn and interviews with his family and friends.
Sarah Jane Morris is a singer with an astonishing vocal range.
