In front of 4000 people, founder of the Montreux Jazz Festival, Claude Nobs reveals last years surprise opener for the closing show “We have the special pleasure of introducing to you Jack Savoretti.” Having played the festival for the first time only ten days prior, the resulting word about town was such that the main man himself invited Jack back to open for Deep Purple on the main stage. So early in his career, he already has a remarkable track record of which this is just one of many highlights.
Re-emerging on the UK live scene in 2011 with new band ‘The Dirty Romantics’ in tow, Jack started showcasing songs from his next album recorded with Martin Terefe (Mary J. Blige, Jason Mraz). While his song writing has always surpassed expectation, this new collection of songs sees an artist coming of age. Lyrically it remains a quintessential Jack Savoretti album, yet the recordings are far more diverse than ever before. While the romantic introspective poet is ever present, there is someone new. A darker, more experienced crooner asking no longer for acceptance but looking for the good times and on his own terms.
