CoS presents: Kahil El’Zabar & EHE | Love Is Everywhere
St James the Great, London
Thursday, 7 Nov 2019 – Friday, 8 Nov 2019
19:30 – 00:00
All the way from Chicago, we are delighted to welcome back Kahil El’Zabar & The New Ethnic Heritage Ensemble .
An artist truly in a league of his own, El’Zabar is a stalwart of spiritual and afro-futuristic jazz with a significant contribution in the continuation of the scene over the last four decades. His driving compositions - simple themes that gain complexity through repetition and improvisation - have been recorded with such jazz heavyweights including Pharoah Sanders, Kalaparusha Maurice McIntyre and “Light” Henry Huff.
Alongside multi-percussionist and vocalist El’Zabar, the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble’s current line-up includes Corey Wilkes on trumpet, who has worked with numerous jazz masters, including Wynton Marsalis, Kurt Elling and with El’Zabar for 15 years, multi-instrumentalist Alex Harding on baritone sax and a special guest on Cello.
We will be serving food from the start &, as ever, all proceeds from the booking fees will be going to charity via Party for the People.
