About the Album

The inspiration for the album's title-track came from the riots in London in August 2011. The whole album was written in one day during this period whilst viewing the riots on TV. The tune ‘The Day of Reckoning’ depicts that day, the sense of foreboding , the sinister gangs on street corners, the violence and looting – and the sudden end.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
