Barb Jungr: Bob, Brel & Me

Barb Jungr’s reputation as ‘one of the world's great cabaret singers’ - Time Out New York - may have gone to her head, as she will now only sing songs by writers whose names start with the letter B. But this means she can return to two colossi of popular song, whose writing has helped define her whole career. A good plan, because she is ‘one of the best interpreters of Jacques Brel and Bob Dylan anywhere on this angst-ridden planet today’ - Village Voice.

In this brand new collection for 2020 , Barb will turn her acclaimed ability at reinvention and reinterpretation to exploring her relationship with a set of Dylan and Brel songs she has never tackled before on stage or on disc, all in original arrangements. They include Les Cœurs Tendres (The Tender Hearts), ‘Voir un Ami Pleurer’ (To See a Friend Break Down and Cry), ‘Mr Tambourine Man’ and ‘This Wheel’s on Fire’. Placed alongside them will be some of Barb’s own songs, written with a number of wonderful collaborators.


‘It’s as if Edith Piaf and Nick Cave had a love-child, who was adopted by Carmen McRae’ - Glam Adelaide

Any performance of an existing song is a conversation between the writer and the singer, and the conversation between Bob, Brel and Barb is a particularly stimulating one, not least because of the way in which gender informs all of their work. Things could get heated. Uh-oh.

Barb can’t wait to scale the mountainous heights of the work of these two extraordinary writers, navigating its complex emotional terrain and traversing its ravines of love, sadness and anger. Why not slip on your crampons and join her for the climb? Bring your own Kendal mint cake.  

‘The alchemist among jazz singers… electrifying… the top rank of jazz singers… she is truly a marvel, who should not be missed’ - Telegraph

Sarah-Jane Morris with Tony Remy and Tim Cansfield

Sarah-Jane Morris


Sweet Little Mystery: A Tribute to the Music of John Martyn


With Tony Remy and Tim Cansfield


‘…a transcendent mix of cold fury and compassion’ – The Observer


‘…this is a remarkable album…for its ambition, its sound world, its powerful stories and, at its centre, the breath-taking range and timbral richness of Sarah Jane Morris’s voice’ - Jazzwise


Sarah-Jane Morris is Britain’s most influential jazz and R&B singer. who topped the UK pop charts for a month in 1986 (with The Communards’ disco version of ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’). Morris’s magnificent soul voice and emotional power has garnered praise and admiration worldwide for over 30 years. Inspired by the unwavering belief in the power of song to change hearts and minds, Sarah Jane has always followed her own star. That independence has brought her a loyal audience, devoted to her feisty, independent musical style.


John Martyn was a sublime genius, and an innovative musical talent who sadly died at 60. He produced a canon of music that is both breathtakingly bold and achingly tender in its complex, atmospheric beauty. Martyn's music influenced a generation of his peers, friends and fans alike. His contribution continues to resonate many years after his passing. He has picked up endless acclaim worldwide from those fortunate enough to be seduced by his unique voice and instrumental mastery; and his music will live forever in the annals of popular music history.


Sarah Jane, through her own brilliant interpretive vocal talents, has picked up this torch to shine a light on this great musical maverick, illuminating his life's work. As a woman she can demonstrate Martyn’s gifts through filters of her own vocal identity and her commitment to sexual politics which might seem at odds with the dark, pained side of John Martyn – but which, in practice, makes it possible for her to re-invent his art without fear of pastiche.
