Regular price £10.00 Sale

To mark what would have been Art Blakey's 100th birthday, award-winning saxophonist, composer and jazz educator Jean Toussaint presents Live at the Jazz Cafe. The music was recorded at the end of an extensive tour to promote Brother Raymond, an album nominated for Album of the Year at the 2019 Jazz FM and Parliamentary Jazz Awards and considered one of the best jazz recordings of 2018 in Jazzwise, The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian and The Sunday Times.
Daily Telegraph journalist Ivan Hewett reviewed the Jazz Cafe concert giving it five stars and remarking, '(Jean Toussaint has) been a genial presence on the UK jazz scene for 30 years, not least as a teacher, and his superb latest album Brother Raymond features more than a dozen of his protegees and colleagues. Last night, only five of them were on stage with him at the Jazz Cafe for a date on the album tour, but what a wonderful sound they made, uproarious, witty and tightly honed, all at once.'
Live at the Jazz Cafe features Toussaint's sextet - Byron Wallen on trumpet, Dennis Rollins on trombone, Andrew McCormack on piano, Daniel Casimir on double bass and Shane Forbes on drums
