Woolwich Works is so excited to welcome the jazz quartet Ruby Rushton, led by the iconic Tenderlonious, for this years EFG London Jazz Festival. They are moving from strength to strength and we cannot wait to hear their new music.

Tenderlonious led jazz quartet Ruby Rushton are one of the leading, most forward thinking and prolific bands to emerge from London’s thriving jazz scene. They have been at the forefront of the UK jazz scene since the release of their debut album ‘Two For Joy’ back in 2015, an album credited with introducing a new generation to jazz music in the U.K. Their music is rooted in the spiritual concepts of jazz heroes such as John Coltrane and Yusef Lateef, whilst adopting influences from hip hop, Afrobeat, bebop, jazz-funk and sounds of the U.K. underground. In 2019 the band released their 4th studio album and most successful to date “Ironside”, described by The Quietus as “vibrant, flawlessly executed and totally joyous throughout; it's hard to ask for more”.

In 2020 they continued in prolific fashion, following up “Ironside” with two sell out 7” singles “Yardley Suite/Overture 1” and “Sun Khosi/Chrysalis” with the latter described by Clash Magazine as “an absolute inspiration, an afrobeat tinged jazz stepper that exudes life, optimism, and purpose. Another piece of forward-thinking jazz music from Ruby Rushton, who somehow manage to sound both innately classic and future-minded at the same time”. 2021 saw the band land with the Jazz FM & Gilles Peterson lauded EP Gideon’s Way, which led to high profile festival slots and performances at the likes of We Out Here Festival, Ronnie Scott’s, Footprints and Istanbul Jazz Festiva
