We are proud to welcome George Cooper and The Jazz Defenders back to their home town following their recent sell-out concert at Ronnie Scotts and National tour to preview their keenly awaited second album.
Led by the formidable Jazz pianists, George Cooper, The Jazz Defenders are a group born from a deep love of Blue Note Jazz, drawing on a wealth of inspiration to craft their own raw and vibrant compositions.
The hard bop recordings of Horace Silver, Hank Mobley, Lee Morgan and Art Blakey were highly regarded for a reason - catchy horn lines and incredible musicianship combined with Rudy Van Gelder's engineering skills mean they will forever be regarded as classics of the genre. The Jazz Defenders are a group that 'defend' the legacy of those recordings whilst creating its own original identity and distinction. The music they produce together is a modern soul jazz slant on this classic Hard Bop, effortlessly channelling the spirit of the golden Blue Note era of Jazz.
Jamie Cullum“Wonderfully put together”
"This Bristol, England outfit understands what made hard bop a force in jazz back in the ’50s and ’60s, and it has unlocked the key to bringing that excitement and style to the 21st century with new original material, and it delivers in a big way. If you dig Horace Silver and Cannonball Adderley, you’ll be thrilled to discover this group."
