Tenderlonious gathers the finest artists from his much-celebrated 22a roster for an end of year, Friday night celebration at The Jazz Cafe.
The 22a stable has been pivotal in shaping the rich sound of London’s improvisational music scene through releases from Tenderlonious’ own band Ruby Rushton plus the likes of Henry Wu, Mo Kolours, Al Dobson Jr and Neue Grafik.
Never afraid to push boundaries or shy away from an ambitious collaborative project, 22a represents everything that is brave and exciting about the current crop of young, British, jazz-influenced talent.
Ruby Rushton have been at the forefront of the UK jazz scene since the release of their debut album ‘Two For Joy’ back in 2015, an album credited with introducing a new generation to jazz music in the U.K.
Nick Walters is arguably one of the most sought after and respected musicians in the UK Jazz scene. Expect another vast exploration of genres, cultures and moods, paying homage to the jazz greats, whilst always giving musicians freedom and room for expression.
Sounds of the Universe DJ Vandorta and 22a roster staple Dennis Ayler will be spinning tunes all night between acts.
