Jazz Messenger Jean Toussaint returns to Hull with his most ambitious and exciting work to date. Building on the success of his 2015 Roots and Herbs project, Toussaint and his all-star band released Brother Raymond in May this year. Gathering 4-star reviews on its release, it’s a daring suite of original pieces that builds on the legacy of the late, great Art Blakey.

Toussaint and his young lions have created a stunning new body of work. With tracks dedicated to Charles Mingus, Idris Muhammad and Eddie Harris, it pays tribute to the jazz greats, whilst showcasing the talent and power of this new generation of musicians.
