Check the track below, it's like someone's opened up a portal like the one in Sigourney Weaver's fridge and Miles Davis has taken on the bodies and souls of UK jazz's best players. If you're swinging at the work of the king Miles Davis and if you're paying homage to his finest hour 'Bitches Brew' you better not miss. Luckily with some of UK jazz's best and forward-looking players I don't think it's in doubt.
For those who dig: Nubya Garcia, Shabaka Hutchings, Theon Cross, Dave Okumu, Benji B, Tom Skinner who all play on this project... not bad, huh?
London Brew is a reimagining of Miles Davis’ legendary album Bitches Brew. Produced by Martin Terefe and Downtown Music UK Limited, the record reflects an emotional journey of the times, having been recorded during the pandemic after many months of isolation and the inability to collaborate in person. Recorded in December 2020 at Church Studios in London, the recording session brings together UK jazz artists, Nubya Garcia, Shabaka Hutchings, Theon Cross, Dave Okumu, Benji B, Tom Skinner and more. Producer Martin Terefe describes, “Sometimes the music is uncomfortable, other times it's familiar and joyous and other times it's like deep meditation.” This album will be a 2-LP set.
