Arthouse documentary about the recording process of ‘We Out Here’
BROWNSWOOD PRESENTS: ‘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.”
