Ashley Henry

Facebook event Share Tweet

The most impressive pianist from the latest generation of UK-jazz

Ashley Henry was born in the south of London in 1991, the year in which the last oil fires of Kuwait were extinguished, Miles Davis passed away, and ‘Step In The Arena’ was released by Gang Starr.

By breaking away from traditional jazz, Henry is a part of the latest surge in the UK jazz scene. His both authentic and refreshing piano style is influenced by: hip-hoppers Madlib & J Dilla, the UK grime of Skepta, as well as Jamaican jazz heroes Joe Harriott & Jackie Mittoo. What’s more, he has already worked with Grammy-winning Keyon Harrold. Following on from his much-discussed EP ‘Easter’, the Brit with Jamaican roots will be putting out his debut album in 2019.

Magische Jazz-momentje in de AB. Duidelijk een van de meest getalenteerde pianisten uit de UK . Ashley bracht Jordan T Hadfield aan op drums. Wat een geweldig jong talent, daar gaan we nog van horen ! Bedankt AB om voluit te gaan voor de UK Jazz scene. PS: Ill Considered, Robohands, Waaju, Pyaen zijn nog niet in Belgie geraakt om een concertje te geven ;-)
