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 stream of interesting releases can no longer be stopped 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, …).

We know Theon Cross as the glorious tuba player of the equally glorious Sons Of Kemet, of course. He debuted with the excellent album ‘Fyah’ earlier this year, a number of stars of the contemporary London jazz scene at his side - saxophonist Nubya Garcia (see too: the all-star supergroup Nérija) and drummer Moses Boyd amongst them. For simplicity, his music is often classified as jazz… but it fully reflects the richness of London’s musical underground (check: grime, afrobeat, dub and dancehall).
