Chandos Records launched Simon’s new CD “Something’s Gotta Give” at the Crypt on the Green, Clerkenwell, London, last night. Simon performed live and sang “On the Street Where You Live” and “The Girl Next Door”, followed by “Stranger in Paradise” with Scarlett Strallen. They were accompanied by Ross Leadbeater at the piano. David Charles Abell, the conductor of the CD, and Sir Peter Moores also attended the event.
Many thanks to Chandos for the invitation to the launch and for a wonderful evening.
