Sunday Jun 14 – After the success of The Brian Jackson Tribute to Gil Scott-heron gig back in Jan – The South London Soul Train are proud to announce another Sunday Jazz Special this time starring another outstanding artist – one of the powerhouse’s of progressive UK Jazz and Hip Hop. The Amazing Soweto Kinch Live at the Bussey building/CLF Art Cafe http://www.residentadvisor.net/event.aspx?715419
A multi-award winning alto-saxophonist and MC Soweto Kinch is one of the most exciting and versatile young musicians in both the British jazz and hip hop scenes. Undoubtedly, one of the few artists in either genre with a degree in Modern History from Oxford University he has amassed an impressive list of accolades and awards on both sides of the Atlantic â€“ including a Mercury Music Prize nomination, two UMA Awards and a MOBO for best Jazz Act in 2003. In October 2007, he won his second MOBO Award, at the O2 Arena, London where he was announced as the winner in the Best Jazz Act category- fending off stiff competition from the likes of Wynton Marsalis.
His skills as a hip hop MC and producer have also garnered him recognition in the urban music world: having supported the likes of KRS ONE, Dwele and TY, and being championed by the likes of Mos Def, Rodney P and BBC 1-Xtraâ€™s Twin B.
