Panjumby

The British jazz scene has always had a close relationship with musicians from the Caribbean and Africa, revitalising itself with fresh energy and new musical ideas at every collaboration. Panjumby draws on music from Trinidad, featuring jazz, calypso and soca material alongside choice standards that speak to the Trini aesthetic. Led by the tremendous lyrical phrasing and rhythmic drive of steel pan master Dudley Nesbitt, Panjumby features great improvisers and a knockout rhythm section. Jouvert!
