‘Refreshingly different. A deep and powerful listening experience.’ (Four Tet)

Ever since AB celebrated the 100th anniversary of the very first jazz album with a tsunami of successful jazz concerts (under the banner JAZZ 100) in 2017, our love of the genre has only increased. We have already presented a number of unique jazz scene reports with the focus on London (from Shabaka Hutchings via Kamaal Williams to Nubya Garcia), Manchester (from GoGo Penguin to Matthew Halsall), Chicago (from Makaya McCraven to Ben LaMar Gay) and, of course, Belgium (from BeraadGeslagen via Steiger to Glass Museum).

‘The Rebirth of Jazz’ is a fact. Jazz continues to reinvent itself, the stream of interesting releases is now unstoppable, and the genre attracts a notably young audience. All good reasons to commit to jazz this fall, with concerts by Theon Cross, Angel Bat Dawid, Oscar Jerome, Ezra Collective, TaxiWars, Joe-Armon Jones, Ill Considered, Sarathy Korwar and Nérija (with members of KOKOROKO, SEED Ensemble, …).

The CV of American born, Indian raised, London resident and percussionist Sarathy Korwar looks pretty impressive. His debut ‘Day To Day’ (2016) was released via the famous Ninja Tune label. Four Tet and Gilles Peterson were instant fans. He realised his A.R.E. project with the assistance of Hieroglyphic Being and adept Shabaka Hutchings. With Upaj Collective, in 2018, he reworked classics by the likes of Alice Coltrane, Pharoah Sanders and Don Cherry. And on his latest, strongly politically-tinted album ‘More Arriving’, he confirms his jazz/world trademark by collaborating with Indian rappers like MC Mawali.

In the press ‘Korwar takes in the political and radical history of jazz as a voice of the disenfranchised, and Korwar applies it to the Indian diaspora experience in contemporary Britain.’ (The Vinyl Factory)
