This week i have mostly been on the M6… but Richard Spaven made it worthwhile. This is what we got up to at MauMaus last Thursday.
Incredible crowd down there as ever. It was steamy.
Jacob Collier is preparing for the grand unveiling of his looping/harmonising concept at Ronnie Scotts on July 1st. Quincy will be there so I’ll be wearing my Quincy shirt which has secret information about him inscribed on the inside. I’m serious. We will also play with the trio from midnight onwards. You should also look out for Jacob on Jamie Cullum‘s show as we recorded 4 exclusive tracks for him down at BBC Maida Vale this week. Meanwhile here’s a thing i made from our previous gig at Soho Pizza Express.
The new album from Roisin Murphy “Hairless Toys” is great and it’s available and it has my bass on it and buy it.
What else is new?… oh yeah – i will be supporting Chaka Kahn with various bands through her week long residency in London from July 6th (Ronnies Scotts). One confirmed line-up features Ben Jones, Jake Edwards-Wood and Dexter Hercules. That should warm them up.
Natalie Williams‘ Soul Family will be appearing in Woburn on July 17th and of course with our regular Ronnies slot on 26th July . There is also talk of us playing at the London Jazz Festival with a string section. I’ll tell you more next time.
