Screening & directors talk: 'We out here, a LDN story'

Facebook event Share Tweet

Arthouse documentary about the recording process of ‘We Out Here’

The concept couldn’t be simpler. Gilles Peterson was so enthusiastic about the contemporary London jazz scene that he was prepared to go to any lengths to document it. He booked three days in a studio and appointed Shabaka Hutchings (Sons of Kemet, The Comet Is Coming) as musical director to guide the entire process. The mindframe: to emulate the creativity of the famous sessions of the ’60s and ’70s for Blue Note and Impulse! The result? “This scene has absorbed London music – be it grime, broken beat or electronic – and has innovated an exciting sonic identity removed from the jazz tradition. ‘We Out Here’ is a celebration of this momentous scene and provides an untouchable time capsule.”

‘WE OUT HERE, A LDN STORY’ (2018, Fabrice Bourgelle)
‘We Out Here, A LDN Story’ is an arthouse documentary about the recording process of the compilation of the same name, ‘We Out Here’. The docu is not only about the renaissance of the London jazz scène, but also about friendship and London. How the city influences them and vice versa. 32 musicians. 9 bands. 3 days. 1 studio.
