UK jazz music is alive and well, with the likes of Moses Boyd, Ashley Henry, Emma Jean Thackray to name a few making waves with new energy and unique compositions that draw as much inspiration from electronic, beats and hip hop as it does from jazz.
Newcomers Vels Trio place them amongst the very best of the new wave by offering up an eclectic blend of modern jazz-fusion on their debut EP.
Their latest offering titled “40 Point” features the supreme talents of saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings (Sons of Kemet, The Comet Is Coming, Shabaka & The Ancestors), who decorates the tight rhythm section with his unique pulsating melodies.
Refreshing, energetic and pulsating music.
