James Mason on Thursday 22nd August 2019
Please note, this event has been postponed until 11th Mar 2020.
AGMP proudly presents
'Rhythm of Life' Tour 2019
Cult genius famed for the 1977 'Rhythm of Life' LP and club classic 'Sweet Power, Your Embrace' which Norman Jay MBE proclaimed to be 'One of the most influential pieces of Jazz-Funk in the 20th Century'.
AGMP are delighted to be welcoming back James Mason for the first time in 15 years to perform two worldwide exclusive concerts in 2019.
James Mason is a keyboardist / guitarist who was a part of the Roy Ayers band in the late 1970's. His only solo album 'Rhythm of Life' was released in 1977 on the Chiaroscuro Records label which has become a holy-grail on the vinyl collectors market. The album featured Narada Michael Walden, Justo Almario, Mbewe Ninoska Escobar, Gene Torres and the heavenly vocals of Clarice Taylor, amongst others. The lead track from the album 'Sweet Power, Your Embrace' was a massive club tune in the 1980's Rare Groove scene and the 1990's Acid Jazz scene. In 1996, AGMPpresented the first ever James Mason concerts anywhere in the world for three sold out shows in London. An unreleased single recorded just after his debut album 'I Want Your Love' b/w 'Night Gruv' was issued to co-incide.
In 2015, James Mason discovered a box of master tapes whilst moving house which were released as 'Recollection Eche' on Shout! Productions. Do not miss your chance to see a true pioneer of Jazz-Funk, James Mason, in concert.
Age 16+, Under 18's accompanied by an adult.
