SEBASTIAN MÜLLER & AHMED DICKINSON AT THE ROYAL ACADEMY OF MUSIC, LONDON.

Friday
Dec142018

THE NJE + OMAR PUENTE + AHMED DICKINSON AT VORTEX, LONDON

An evening for the Play for Cuba Appeal www.playforcuba.org raising funds and collecting musical instruments to fill a shipping container to send to Cuba for young musicians across the island.

The NJE (Near Jazz Experience) are made up of multi-instrumentalist Terry Edwards, bassistMark Bedford and drummer Simon Charterton. The three have an amazing and eclectic musical history but are best known for their work as members of Madness and the Higsons. The mainstay of the NJE sound are Edwards’ double-sax technique – playing alto & tenor simultaneously, Charterton’s polyrhythmic funk patterns and Bedford’s fluid but grounding basslines.

Imagine Cross Can’s rhythm section with Roland Kirk, Motown and the Third Stream and you’ll get somewhere near where The NJE are coming from. http://thenje.co.uk/

“The NJE are first class musicians delivering first class music. What’s not to love?” – Jazz In Europe
