The future of the British jazz scene. Let’s start from the beginning – the band is led by Ed Cawthorne (aka Tenderlonious) – flautist, saxophonist, producer, DJ and founder of the 22a label. He is said to be the hardest working man in South London, who has helped to turn the whole UK music scene upside down when he drew attention of club regulars to live music performed by real musicians. Like any true jazz band, 22orchestra was created spontaneously, for a session at the Abbey Road studio of the Beatles’ fame. The majority of the seven musicians are responsible for conveying the hot rhythm of African dub and Latin dance nerve.
They will play in the Impart’s backyard just a day after the release of their latest album – The Shakedown – an absolute premiere.
