"Every once in a blue moon, a piano entertainer of charm, dynamism, dexterity and sparkling brilliance emerges. Jon England, the most 'English' of Englishmen is just such a performer.
Stylistically reminiscent of the 'romantic' piano balladeers of yesteryear ~ Liberace, Carmen Cavallaro, Eddy Duchin to name a few ~ a remarkably informal early musical education (a record turntable and his Dad's banjo to be precise!) has flourished to bring audiences a uniquely gifted and thrilling entertainer who regularly enriches the soul with his graceful and heartfelt presentations of standards and emerging popular classics.
This album will soothe, bedazzle, entertain and infuse you with a rich musical enjoyment, all of which makes us very proud to present Jon England, the "Velvet Piano" player."
