THE EXCEPTIONAL TALENT OF INTERNATIONAL JAZZ PIANIST, JOHN CRAWFORD WILL STORM THE CAPRICE RESTAURANT AS THE LONDA HOTEL BRACES ITSELF FOR IT’S HOTTEST JAZZYBRUNCH EVENT YET, NO 4 IN THE INNOVATIVE JAZZ SERIES
The hugely successful musical programme, the Londa Jazz series, set in the chic ambience of the hotel’s award-winning Caprice restaurant, is fast establishing the island’s only contemporary boutique property as a uniquely innovative musical venue. Returning for JazzyBrunch number 4 on Sunday 1st May, the Caprice this time plays host to exceptional international musical talent, Jazz pianist John Crawford and his trio, whilst the delicious Jazzybrunch buffet lunch is served from 1.00pm – 3.30pm at just €35.00 per person.
Born in London to English/Spanish parents who, from an early age introduced him to Blues piano and the sensual varieties of Latin music, it was perhaps inevitable that this melodious mix of jazz and blues would lead Crawford to the international world stage he so comfortably inhabits. His celebrated performances at the Montreal Jazz Festival, London’s Ronnie Scott’s Club, the Royal Festival Hall and the Royal Albert Hall amongst others, have earned him a unique reputation; meanwhile his musical virtuosity is much sought after by percussion legends in both the Latin and Jazz worlds, as well as with celebrated pop artists including Bjork, Tanita Tikarem, Andy Williams and Kirsty McColl, to name a few.
With such a high calibre performer gracing the Londa Jazz Series, Jochen Niemann, the Hotel’s General Manager said “this is sure to be an exceptional occasion; we’re delighted to be able to welcome such a unique talent to the Londa Hotel as part of our Jazzybrunch series. Definitely not to be missed.”
Matthew Steliou, Artistic Director of the Limassol Jazz Festival 2010 and the Londa Jazz Series added “Crawford is an amazing jazz pianist. He is renowned on the world stage and we are privileged to have such a quality performer appearing with us for the 4th Jazzybrunch.”
The Londa’s unique atmosphere of easy, chill-out chic and the Caprice’s cool Italian styled interior flanked by the tranquil blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea, is the perfect backdrop for ‘John Crawford’. The fourth JazzyBrunch lunchtime buffet will be served between 1.00pm – 3.30pm in the Londa’s Caprice Restaurant on Sunday 1st May. At just €35,00 per person, including a delicious lunchtime buffet, the ‘Londa Jazz Series’ is sure to be a sell-out; reserve your table now to avoid disappointment.
