He is joined for this special one night only performance at CJC by both Ron Samsom & Adam Tobeck on double drum kits along with Oli Holland on bass and Roger Manins on tenor saxophone for a night best described as James Brown meets Thelonius Monk.

Expect explosive Jazz meets dynamic Funk with a little Blues thrown in.
