Jay Rayner leaped at the chance to play one of the famed Steinways at King’s Place, and spoke about the music that has shaped his life, his flirtations with electro pop in the 80s, why he was drummed out of a blues band made up entirely of writers and, accompanied by a few of Britain’s best jazz musicians, will play some of his favourite numbers.

If you know anything at all, thank you for coming.’
