Check out the full interview as Colleen 'Cosmo' Murphy and DJ Yoda dig deep into the most inventive, assured, and playful debut in hip-hop history De La Soul's 3 Feet High and Rising which not only proved that rappers didn’t have to talk about the streets to succeed, but also expanded the palette of sampling material with a kaleidoscope of sounds and references culled from pop, soul, disco, and even country music.
For our second and final event at EFG London Jazz Festival 2018 we were joined by Soweto Kinch to look back at the brilliant 'Abstract' by The Joe Harriott Quintet at Kings Place on Sunday 25th November 2018. “Joe Harriott was the sort of pioneer whose significance and unique contributions are only beginning to be recognised long after his passing. His ‘freeform’ concept predated free jazz, he was among the first to appreciate the role of visual art and his Indo-Jazz fusion laid an important milestone for future jazz-world music collaborations. I’m always moved by the ambition and virtuosity of someone who refused to be defined by his humble beginnings or the racism of his times, as he quipped himself, ‘I’m not your equal, I’m your superior.’ I’m really looking forward to listening to and deconstructing Abstract in more forensic detail – discovering more nuance and insights with an audience, and remembering this uncompromising innovator.” Soweto Kinch
