Mixing standards, recent gems and originals, at just 23 Stewart has carved out a niche as one of the most exciting vocal acts on the UK scene. His razor-sharp band is augmented by the incendiary saxophonist from award-winning groupAlexander Stewart is already creating a buzz as one of the most precociously talented vocalists of the new generation. With a voice rooted in Connick and Sinatra – and with a touch of the Kurt Elling rasp – Stewart avoids being a nostalgia act by a judiciously off-beat choice of material and a decidedly contemporary energy level.As well as clever re-arrangements of great standards, he translates pop songs into jazz and adds some originals, including songs by pianist Alex Webb. Stewart performs with Webb, acclaimed bassist Gary Crosby - recently made an OBE for services to jazz in the UK, and Andy Chapman on drums.This talented twenty-two-year-old jazz singer glides effortlessly through his songs … and some terrific original material written by Alex Webb, his Musical Director. Anyone interested in a star-hopefully-in-the-making, should high-tail it to see him.’- Cabaret Scenes magazineThe Observer‘A singer to listen out for … astonishingly mature for his 23 years … a pretty auspicious beginning’.The Metro‘A cause for celebration … All Or Nothing At All doesn’t disappoint’.
