Two of the happening bands in jazz in the UK on one superb double bill!

Nerija are a collective of London-based musicians playing exciting and original music inspired by Jazz, Hip Hop, Afrobeat and South African Township. Featuring a line-up truly representative of the up-coming London jazz scene, the seven-piece band features rising players such as tenor saxophonist Nubya Garcia, one of the leading forces behind the resurgence of jazz in the UK, trumpeter Sheila Maurice-Grey and guitarist Shirley Tetteh (most recently at the Jazz Leeds concert in November with Arun Ghosh). Their eclectic repertoire appeals to not only the UK jazz scene but also to pop-focused audiences.

Sheila Maurice-Grey trumpet, Rosie Tu...rton trombone, Cassie Kinoshi alto sax, Nubya Garcia tenor sax, Shirley Tetteh guitar, Rio Kai double bass, Lizy Exell drums

Pigfoot — a fresh look at Armstrong, Jelly Roll, Fats Waller et al. Their debut CD "21st Century Acid Trad"was released to critical acclaim on Village Life

"..stunning in their originality and almost anarchically gleeful sense of fun. Pigfoot reminded us that this music was once raucously subversive and intensely joyous." Matthew Wright — londonjazznews.com
