Lineup and Details for City of London Festival on Fri 13th July 2012
Inspired by the rhythms of traditional Jamaican music, original Jazz Warrior, and veteran jazz double bassist, Gary Crosby turned a musical concept into a joyful reality. Garys concept was to create a quintessential fusion of mento, ska, reggae and jazz, playing classic and modern jazz standards alongside Jamaican folksongs. To achieve this, he gathered together a group of musicians drawn from the jazz and reggae circuits, each of whom is a distinguished musician in his own right. Tonight featuring special guest, Jamaicas First Lady of Jazz, Myrna Hague.
