Jon Regen




Awarding Regen's solo run at Crazy Coqs THREE STARS, Clive Davis of The Times wrote "Most of his set was devoted to crisp melodic hooks and domestic vignettes that were more reminiscent of Billy Joel than anyone from the jazzier side of the tracks… In his Piccadilly residency he keeps himself company, generating a funky but sophisticated backdrop. His musical pedigree came to the fore on the album’s shuffling title song, written, he told us, after he jammed with the actor Jeremy Irons at a party. On a cold, bleak night Regen’s sultry vamps gave us the warmth and vitality of Mardi Gras.”
