THE JAZZ CAFE

by Rosie G.

May 19, 2024

The unique sounds of this 9-piece jazz band will have you hooked. We featured them in 2021 and their mix of global sounds intertwined with jazz and electronics will make you swoon. The music genres of soul, hip-hop, and world music with jazz puts a smile on your face.


Tom Excell, the group leader who plays guitar, composes and arranges and his merry men and women of electrifying grooves have released several albums and debuted in 2015 with their self-titled album. They released albums in 2019 Jungle Run, and Freedom Fables in 2021. Since their debut, they have received critical acclaim from such artists as David Byrne of Talking Heads fame and many others. Their horn section will blow your mind. They have added vocalist Aziza Jaye and have the legendary Nile Rodgers, Seun Kuti, and others collaborating on their just-released album, Find Your Flame. Check out the songs “Lights Out” a soulful disco groove and “All The Same.” They are on tour and will play at the Glastonbury Festival on June 29th. We will wait patiently for them to tour here in the U.S. soon. Support independent music and musicians worldwide. Happy listening!
