"Jack Gibbons is a unique phenomenon in the musical world of today. Thanks to his virtuosic skills Gibbons can hold an audience in thrall. His concert-giving style is equally attractive: before his performances he talks unassumingly but with great authority from the platform, drawing the listeners into a special relationship."

Humphrey Burton, former Head of Music and Arts, BBC

Jack Gibbons, d
escribed by Classic FM as “one of the world’s greatest Gershwin exponents”, recreates the legendary piano playing of George Gershwin through his note-for-note reconstructions of the composer’s recordings (featured on Gibbons’ award-winning “authentic Gershwin” CDs). In addition his programme will include three of his own compositions, including his most recent work.

"Gershwin does not come more exhilarating than this"
Classic CD magazine

"Hearing Jack Gibbons perform is like being at a Gershwin party, in a sense like being with Gershwin."
Edward Jablonski (Gershwin's biographer)

"Jack Gibbons is renowned for his skills as a piano virtuoso. What is less well known, perhaps, is that he is also a composer of distinction... Every song [of Gibbons] was a tour de force, each imbued with a radiant glow."
Oxford Times
