Fancy an evening of smooth jazz and a bottle of wine with someone special? Of course you do! 

Roxanne at The Verdict proudly presents Craig Handy and Ross Stanley. This is an unmissable opportunity to see one of the giants of the Marsalis generation alongside one of the UK's finest jazz pianists.

Craig reinvigorated acoustic jazz in the 80’s and 90’s. His distinctive sound and authentic instrumental prowess were redoubtable traits immediately noticed by artists of stature, especially those committed to nurturing new talent on the bandstand and road. He moved to New York in 1986 and began several associations with formidable artists including master drummers Art Blakey. Eleven Jones and Roy Haynes, South African melodist Abdullah Ibrahim, and the Mingus Dynasty Band. Having spent much of his career as a sideman, in more recent years Craig has finally started to perform and record under his own name, most notably with his highly acclaimed band "Craig Handy & 2nd Line Smith", which draws much of it's inspiration from his fondness for the contemporary music of New Orleans. His ability to inhabit the emotional dimensions of a song, delivering his own striking and elegant interpretations, make him a musician much admired the world over by both audiences and fellow musicians alike.

As one of the UK's top jazz pianists, Ross is constantly in demand for his flowing creative and lyrical playing. His soloing is profoundly steeped in complex harmonic tension and release but always serves the music and is universally revered by both fellow musicians and the wider listening public alike.

He began having piano lessons at the age of 4. At the age of 13, he was awarded an organ scholarship to Marlborough College. Upon leaving Marlborough, Ross was invited to study for his music degree at several renowned institutions including Trinity College of Music, Guildhall School of Music and a scholarship to Berklee College of Music in the USA. However, he decided to stay in London and completed a BMUS in classical and jazz piano at Guildhall in 2004. He went onto play with jazz names such as Will Vinson, Dennis Rollins, Guy Barker, Ian Shaw, Liane Carroll, Stan Sulzman, SteveArguelles, John Paracelli, Bobby Wellins, Clark Tracey, as well as being a regular member of the Jim Mullen Organ trio and the Jaqui Dankworth Band and performing in many small and large ensembles - including Nostalgia 77 Octet and The Heritage Orchestra.

As well as your two jazz tickets, you'll also be sipping on a bottle of red, white or rosé wine – heavenly! 

Doors are at 7pm and the performance starts at 8.30pm.
