Jazz Re​:​freshed Live - Prelude

Without a doubt, the hottest & most progressive soulful jazz event in the UK is Jazz Re:freshed at Mau Mau in West London. Going strong for nine years, Jazz Re:freshed has cultivated itself as a movement challenging the status quo, stiffness & prejudice of the jazz world while supporting & breaking the hottest young talents breathing a new life into the art form. A few years ago, they started recording audio for their shows on very simple equipment. The audio was not necessarily high quality but keepsakes for their personal memories. As a token of their appreciation for all the support of their fans far & wide over the years, the crew at Jazz Re:freshed grabbed some of the better quality tracks for their long list of shows & compiled them in this free download. Some of the recordings may be slightly rough around the edges but it'll give you a taste of the emotions & energy of these performances. Included in these live recordings are performances from Mark de Clive Lowe, Kaidi Tatham, Richard Spaven, Grant Windsor & many more.
