It is a record that could only have been made in the 21st Century.

    27: Soweto Kinch on The Joe Harriott Quintet ‘Abstract’ for Classic Album Sundays at EFG London Jazz Festival

    21/03/2019 Duração: 02h32min

    For our second and final event at EFG London Jazz Festival 2018 we were joined by Soweto Kinch to look back at the brilliant 'Abstract' by The Joe Harriott Quintet at Kings Place on Sunday 25th November 2018. “Joe Harriott was the sort of pioneer whose significance and unique contributions are only beginning to be recognised long after his passing. His ‘freeform’ concept predated free jazz, he was among the first to appreciate the role of visual art and his Indo-Jazz fusion laid an important milestone for future jazz-world music collaborations. I’m always moved by the ambition and virtuosity of someone who refused to be defined by his humble beginnings or the racism of his times, as he quipped himself, ‘I’m not your equal, I’m your superior.’ I’m really looking forward to listening to and deconstructing Abstract in more forensic detail – discovering more nuance and insights with an audience, and remembering this uncompromising innovator.” Soweto Kinch

    22: Dave Davies on ‘The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society' for National Album Day at The John Peel Centre For Creative Arts

    17/10/2018 Duração: 01h08min

    To celebrate the first ever National Album Day we were joined by Dave Davies from The Kinks to look back at 50 years since the release of ‘The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society’ at The John Peel Centre For Creative Arts in Stowmarket. The Kinks are the Village Green Preservation Society wasn’t initially a success upon it’s release, coming along at a time when Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Ladyland, Led Zeppelin’s debut, and the Rolling Stones’ Beggars Banquet were the flavours of the day. Although praised by many critics, it was largely overlooked by the public. However, as years passed, it’s following grew until it become viewed as a masterpiece. For many it is now justly considered Davies’ and The Kinks’ most satisfying album: a creative highpoint matched only by the band’s landmark singles of the period. Read more: classicalbumsundays.com
