World-renowned drummer/composer Myele Manzanza has proved that he’s an artist who continues to dissolve the borders between modern jazz and electronic beat production.
Tapping into the vibrant scene of his adopted home, Myele recently released his new project on London-based label DeepMatter. Crisis & Opportunity Vol.1 – London features a top tier cast of young London based talent including Ashley Henry (piano), James Copus (trumpet), George Crowley (tenor saxophone), Benjamin Muralt (bass) and additional contributions from the legendary Mark de Clive-Lowe (synths), with Myele Manzanza (drums) captaining the ship.
The band will be playing tunes from ‘London’ as well as Myele’s back catalogue.
