LONDON SpiceJazz Soho (Spice of Life),
6 Moor Street
W1D 5NA

'Wakey Blakey' is a new band playing the music of legendary drummer Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers but with the lesser-known sextet line up as exemplified by the stellar 1960s front-line of Freddie Hubbard, Curtis Fuller and Wayne Shorter plus the powerhouse of pianist Cedar Walton, bassist Reggie Workman and Mr Blakey. This project demonstrates hard bop with a frighteningly fresh feel; the music is wildly high-energy and unbelievably swinging. Featuring some of finest talent on the British Jazz scene: JAMES DAVISON trumpet, RORY INGHAM trombone, HELENA KAY tenor sax, DESCHANEL GORDON piano, SAM QUINTANA bass & WILL CLEASBY drums.

Line up: 

RORY INFGAM: trombone 

JIM DAVIDSON: trumpet 

HELENA KAY: tenor sax 

DESCHANEL GORDON: piano 

SAM QUINTANA: double bass 

WILL CLEASBY: drums
