Join us for an exciting evening of music as pianist/composer as Brian Clemens and the dynamic Francesca Confortini come together to present an exciting blend of jazz classics, original songs, and reimagined takes on familiar jazz and pop standards. From the infectious rhythms of swing and Latin to the soulful vibes of R&B, Brian’s inventive flair, coupled with Francesca’s captivating vocals, promises an engaging and authentic musical experience.

The band will feature tracks from Brian’s recent album, “Beneath the Blue,” and present renditions from their recently recorded “Live in London” album, offering creative interpretations of classics by artists like The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, and Carole King.


Brian Clemens is a London-based jazz pianist, arranger, and bandleader originally from Los Angeles. After earning his Master’s Degree in California and studying under Grammy Award-winning pianist/arranger Bill Cunliffe, Brian established himself in the vibrant Los Angeles music scene. He has headlined at renowned venues such as Herb Albert’s Vibrato Jazz Grill and Campus JAX. Recently, Brian has gained international acclaim, captivating audiences in countries such as The Netherlands and Spain. His latest album, “Live in London Ft. Francesca Confortini,” was recorded in London in the fall of 2023 and is available on all streaming platforms.

Brian Clemens draws inspiration from legendary pianists such as Oscar Peterson, Ray Charles, Billy Joel, and George Shearing. His arranging styles reflect the influence of greats like Billy May and Nelson Riddle.

Italian-born jazz vocalist Francesca Confortini brings her soulful tone to every performance. With a background in musical theatre and international experience as a singer for the likes of Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens), along with work with gypsy-jazz ensembles Trio Manouche and Gypsy Dynamite as well as her own trio Jazz Silhouettes, she exudes sophistication and warmth in everything she does. A versatile vocalist capable of moving from her neo-jazz originals to interpretation of the American Songbook classics Francesca is without doubt “one to watch”!

“Francesca brings such energy, drive and musicianship to the task of bandleader that it all works” – The Arts Desk
