In February '07 Marti played three nights at the world famous Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, London. There were two shows each night, each one starting with the excellent Ronnie Scott's All Stars and some amazing piano playing by a young Russian - Eldar. When Marti took to the stage at "Bonnie Scot's" he had a fantastic group of musicians backing him -
Marti's fans will remember Jim from the 2006 tour when he impressed everyone. However, at Ronnie's he really did show what an amazing pianist he is!
The set list was as follows -
Lady With The Mandolin is a new song that was written by Marti and Chris Difford. It fitted very well in the set list alongside jazz classics, proving the quality of the song writing partnership that Marti has with Chris!
Although this was a new arena for Marti, he performed brilliantly and was very much at home with this genre. It was clear that he thoroughly enjoyed himself as did the audience. Marti talked about each song in turn, telling of when he'd first heard it or why he'd chosen to sing it. Once again he proved his versatility by giving a performance that was second to none!Back To Home
