2 iconic albums performed by a full band with 2 outstanding vocalists
Tapestry by Carole King
The Stranger by Billy Joel
Stranger, the Billy Joel album feat. Tom Seals
Tom Seals, fresh from Ronnie Scott’s, 606, Cheltenham Jazz Festival is an amazing pianist & live performer. Here he pays tribute to Billy Joel, performing songs from The Stranger amongst others.
Stranger is the 5th studio album made by Billy Joel and he was under some pressure when he made it. Despite “Piano Man” which was his second album, sales hadn’t been great. Made in only 3 weeks with Phil Ramone as producer, the album went on to sell millions.
Tom Seals is fresh from his sell-out “Let The Good Times Roll” Tour
“quite possibly the future of Jazz/Pop”, he literally has the world at his fingertips. His virtuoso soloing, excellent improvisation skills as well as a distinctive voice have left top industry officials hailing him as one of the UK’s finest Blues/Boogie-Woogie piano/vocalists.
One of the UK’s most in-demand side men, Tom has worked with/supported established artists such as Jools Holland, Gregory Porter, Chas and Dave, Cerys Matthews, DJ Trevor Nelson, Daniel Bedingfield, Tony Christie, Lance Ellington, Kenny Thomas, Sad Cafe, Showaddywaddy, Chesney Hawkes, Steve Brookstein, Joe Stilgoe and Dame Cleo Laine.

I feel the earth move

Will you love me tomorrow
