The pianist/vocalist of iconic band Level 42, Mike Lindup, teams up with Latin Jazz pianist Alex Wilson for a special concert of Afro-Cuban Level 42 songs and latin jazz pianistic fireworks plus Venezuelan percussionist Edwin Sanz and bassist Davide Mantovani. Known worldwide as a key player of the hugely successful Level 42 band, Mike Lindup recently released a solo album featuring his piano playing "Conversations with Silence", which includes strong influences from Brazil and Cuba, and is a fascinating insight into Mike's pianistic work. With nine solo albums released, Derbyshire-born Wilson's driving passion is latin music and he has an authentic command of Latin American and Caribbean rhythms, an unquenchable appetite for stripping back this music to its African roots and fearlessly exploring of the welter of world rhythms. In the spring of 2014, Mike Lindup visited Alex Wilson's Zurich studio and they worked on new versions of existing Level 42 songs, re-arranging them with an Afro-Cuban slant, as they have never been heard before and created for a special performance at Pizza Express’s very own London Latin Jazz Fest 2014. Due to popular demand, they are back with this show for a second performance at the prestigious Steinway Festival - a night combining fresh versions of famous songs with Cuban fireworks … not to be missed!Tickets Save
