James Taylor Quartet + Orchestra

Date 11/05/2022 Total price, inc booking fee £34.20 Time 19:00
One of the pioneers of the Acid Jazz scene, JTQ have taken their distinctive trademark howling Hammond sound to the masses for over 30 years; still famed for their upbeat, energetic live shows with no sign of slowing down. The band's relentlessly entertaining tunes take inspiration from the rare-groove style funk, and boogaloo funk of the 60s and 70s and, the band is, without a doubt, one of the most important jazz-pop crossover outfits in British live musical history today.

This special show at Islington Assembly Hall will see James Taylor Quartet joining forces with some of the UK's finest string and horn players to perform a set of filmic, Quincy Jones, Lalo Schifrin, John Barry inspired orchestral funky soundtrack music on Wednesday 11 May 2022.

The repertoire will come from the forthcoming orchestral funk album 'MAN IN THE HOT SEAT' to be released on Audio Network Records, as well as from the last two critically acclaimed JTQ orchestral albums, "People Get Ready' and 'Soundtrack from Electric Black'.

Stage times are posted at 11am on the day of the show on our website.
