UK Soul Jam Serves Up a Delicious, Jazzy & Soulful Line-Up

27 01 2011

All roads lead to the UK Soul Jam at Camden’s Jazz Cafe on Sunday 6th February for a Nu-Jazz special. The night features so much talent for a measly tenner that you’re likely to be committed should you not make it along. Heading up the event is the one and only Valerie Etienne, renowned UK soul and jazz vocalist on the scene for many years with an envious back-catalogue of accessible and progressive sounds. Her work as part of Galliano on the infamous Talking Loud label certainly helped to inform my musical path over the past twenty year, so I’m thrilled to be seeing her live as part of the UK Soul Jam.

More quality comes from Heidi Vogel (Cinematic Orchestra), Cecilia Stalin (Koop), Floetic Lara, Lisa Mayers, Sherry Davis and up and coming eclectic soul star in the making Matti Roots (check the dope track OCD below), among others.

In addition to the live performances, there will also be an open mic and jam session to included the public as the night progresses. It certainly sounds as if anything could happen, albeit all deep with a jazzy and soulful vibe. Previous surprise guests have included Amy Winehouse, Shalamar’s Jeffrey Daniels and Marsha Ambrosius. One to reach? No doubt.

Grab your tickets from the Jazz Cafe right here. Oh, and here’s a lovely flyer with all the necessary details.
