Fri 8th February

Homeboy Sandman & Edan   7pm Friday 8th February    @ The Jazz Cafe, Parkway, Camden London NW1      Having put their deft minds together on their recent collab album Humble Pi on Stones Throw, we are delighted to bring two cult alt rap figures in Homeboy Sandman and Edan from New York to The Jazz Cafe. As two artists that profess to come from the same pseudo-traditionalist school of style and execution, Homeboy Sandman and Edan are somewhat mavericks of modern hip-hop. However, while Homeboy Sandman’s release record has been fairly busy in recent years, it took producer Edan has remained somewhat of an enigma since the late noughties. In fact, it took an approach from the rapper to spark the DC producer back into life, which led to the two putting their minds together for Humble Pi. With the deft and quizzical rhymes of Sandman melding comfortably with Edan’s old-school, psychedelic soundscapes, we’re left with one the most intriguing collaborations to come out in recent years. Opening the show are London based quintet Third Estate. Combining high-grade MCs with live musicianship, they delivers slick grooves and serious lyricism. No two shows are the same for this exciting new collective, blurring the boundaries between hip-hop, jazz and...

The Jazz Cafe

Some words on The Jazz Cafe from Spin Doctor As some of you may have already heard London’s legendary The Jazz Cafe is goes through some changes. The Doctor’s Orders has had many great nights at the venue putting on great shows with legends such as Big Daddy Kane, Jazzy Jeff, Talib Kweli, The Last Poets (plus many more) and our hugely popular Hip-Hop vs RnB monthly club night (now re-launching at The Garage). I was honored to play a part in their programming over the last few years and in their special 25th anniversary celebrations last year. We want to thank all of the incredible staff that helped make all the events such a success and a pleasure to promote. The work that goes on behind the scenes at a venue like The Jazz Café, putting on 500+ events a year, is phenomenal and when done well goes largely unnoticed. Special shout outs go to Ivor 2 step, Sazzle ‘T-Rex’, John Chips & gravy, Guestlist Goose, French Ralf, Pajoe the party and Sheila the smile. What does the future hold? Right now that is a little unclear. We have known about the take over for some time but been unable to discuss it until the deal completed. The new owners, The Columbo Group, are the people behind XOYO, The Old Queens Head, Phonox and The Blues Kitchen. As we understand it the venue is closed until late May for a refurb at which time it will reopen still as The Jazz Cafe. The focus will remain on being a hub for live music seven nights a week with club nights on weekends. For many the venue has not only been somewhere to discover new music but also hear legends perform in a very intimate...
