This Wednesday sees a rather special gig from those lovely people at Brownswood, and I, for one, can’t wait…
Anyone who has read just a couple of my posts will know that I have a rather large soft spot for Gilles Peterson and his new(ish) record label Brownswood Recordings. It perfectly encapsulates Gilles’ eclectic taste in music, stretching as it does from the dance-floor jazz of Soil & “Pimp” Sessions to the hip-hop soul of Ben Westbeech; the huge ambition of the Heritage Orchestra to the perfectly formed sound of José James.
This Wednesday (31st October) Brownswood are putting on a gig at Bush Hall in London: Brownswood Loves Jazz. Acts performing are Soil & “Pimp” Sessions, José James & Elan Mehler whilst Mr Peterson will be presiding &, I presume, spinning a few records. Tickets are only £10 but seem to be sold out on the web. You can contact the box office directly on 020 8222 6933, but it seems to be set to a fax machine at the moment.
Anyway, it promises to be special, so hopefully I’ll see you there.
