Peter Horsfall vocals/trumpet

Restaurant critic, Masterchef judge and long-time jazz pianist Jay Rayner launches his quartet’s first live album A Night of Food and Agony, which brings together songs about food and drink and stories about his mother, agony aunt Claire Rayner.

In his quartet, there’s a special chemistry between singer Pat Gordon-Smith and Jay, which isn’t surprising – they’re married to each other. This isn’t nepotism, it’s good fortune – she’s been singing longer than Jay and studied with Liane Carroll. The band is completed by saxophonist Dave Lewis and the formidably inventive Robert Rickenberg on bass.

Join Jay for a night of food, agony, cracking stories and music that will nourish the soul – and get there early for a special set by Peter Horsfall, featured in Kansas Smitty’s House Band, with what BBC Radio 3’s Suzi Klein called ‘a bittersweet beautiful voice and timeless trumpet’.
