Don’t sleep on Mr Kinch” The New York TimesLINEUP TBC but likely to include: Soweto Kinch (alto sax, voc), Karl Rasheed-Abel (bs), Shane Forbes (drs)Award winning alto-saxophonist and MC Soweto Kinch is one of the most exciting and versatile young musicians in both the British jazz and hip hop scenes. Undoubtedly, one of the few artists in either genre with a degree in Modern History from Oxford University he has amassed an impressive list of accolades and awards on both sides of the Atlantic. In October 2007, he won his second MOBO Award, at the O2 Arena, London where he was announced as the winner in the Best Jazz Act category- fending off stiff competition from the likes of Wynton Marsalis. These very special shows with a striped back trio (TBA but probably bassist Karl Rasheed abel and drummer Shaney Forbes) are in support of his brilliant new album ‘The Legend Of Mike Smith” which draws on Dante and The Seven Deadly sins, telling the tale of a young MC caught in a very modern world of temptation.
