THERE IS A PLACE
Here’s a wondrous, percussion-led take on spiritual jazz via the uk’s awesome contemporary jazz scene taking inspiration from alice coltrane, pharaoh sanders and sun ra.
The six-piece group bring a fresh slant to the weighty spiritual jazz tradition, rhythm-centred and frequently blooming in kaleidoscopic brilliance. band members include Amané Suganami, Twm Dylan, Tim Doyle, Yahael Camara-Onono, Shirley Tetteh and Nubya Garcia – the latter of which blew us away just last month with her solo record. Here her talents mesh with her bandmates to dizzying effect. Seriously, give the 11+ minute “osiris” a whirl and get yourself transported. Totally mesmerizing, utterly confidant, indelibly new. “Blazing… Maisha are no mere copyists (…) this is above all a celebration of young, eclectic Britain” 4* - the guardian, “another jewel” 9/10 – all about jazz
