A heart-throbbing set of 70s fusion jazz and club music from one of the most original modern jazz musicians.

British musician and producer Kamaal Williams is among the brightest stars of the 2010s, a time of witnessing the exciting integration of jazz and hip-hop. blending his love for 70s fusion jazz traditions with funk, hip-hop and dance music, Williams captures the heart-warming, unique sound of the 21st century London. While continuing his electronic house music productions under the name Henry Wu, he collaborated with the drummer Yussef Dayes in 2016 to create the album, Black Focus, and went on tours that stormed the world.

Although the Yussef Kamaal duo decided to part ways in 2017, Kamaal Williams released his album, The Return, last year under Black Focus, his brand-new record company, rendering the jazz-funk heritage of legends like Herbie Hancock, Weather Report, Lonnie Liston Smith and Roy Ayers. Led by the keyboard virtuoso, drummer MckNasty, bassist Pete Martin and sound engineer Richard Samuels joined forces for this album that can be described as a modern classic with its rich genre including broken beat, grime, house and UK garage.

Those who want to experience the groundbreaking music event of recent years in terms of modern jazz and London jazz scenes should take their places at the Studio for Kamaal Williams’ sophisticated concert, opening doors to new worlds.

 

“Don’t worry about making money, that’s going to come. If it’s your destiny to become successful then it will happen regardless. Just focus on the craft. If you love what you do, people around, they will see that.”

Kamaal Williams, 2018
