    Brand new album from the Tenderlonious led jazz quartet, Ruby Rushton!

    ’Ironside’ sees the band continuing to push boundaries, and lead the way, with this new genre defying recording. The quartet’s fresh, high energy sound is rooted in the spiritual concepts of John Coltrane and Yusef Lateef, paying homage to The Headhunters and Weather Report heyday, whilst adopting influences from hip hop, Afrobeat and the UK underground culture.

    This is the band's 4th studio album and most complete work to date. Highly recommended!


    *CD has two bonus tracks
