Mansur Brown and Yussef Dayes go supernova with the Jimi Hendrix Songbook

Print

Rising star guitarist Mansur Brown and exciting drummer Yusef Dayes are teaming up to explore the mind-expanding music of Jimi Hendrix for a special one-off concert at St James the Great Church, Lower Clapton, East London on Friday 8 September.

Prodigiously talented 18-year old Brown's scorching guitar work has been a key part of Triforce, his Mahavishnu Orchestra-inspired four-piece who've been creating buzz through incendiary performances in London and at Jazz in the Round at this year's Love Supreme Jazz Festival. Frenetic drummer Dayes has also earned widespread acclaim with his now-disbanded drum'n'bass partnership, Yusef Kamaal, with keyboardist Kamaal Williams and their album Black Focus.

For their improv-fuelled Hendrix-inspired first set the pair will be joined by bassist Rocco Palladino plus a special guest vocalist still to be announced. Following this Brown and Dayes will also present a second set of brand new original material, which will get its public premiere this evening, with keyboardist Charlie Stacey and a guest vocalist joining the ensemble.
