Described as ‘the leader of the black avant-garde in Britain’, his written work and performance occupies a space between surrealism, Jazz and the rhythms of Caribbean speech and music."


    Conscious, spiritual jazz music delivered with a powerful message that resonates with these times. Highly recommeded!
