SOIL & PIMP "SESSIONS" with Jamie Cullum
Japanese jazz renegades SOIL & "PIMP" SESSIONS like to get you off your seats. The Tokyo six piece featuring Shacho (agitator, spirit), Tabu zombie (trumpet), Motoharu (sax), Josei (piano), Akita Goldman (bass) and Midoryn (drums) made their mark on the Japanese scene with what they like to call "DEATH JAZZ", focusing on exhilarating live shows. This year they join us for the BBC Electric Proms alongside the UK's very own jazz sensation, Jamie Cullum.
Cullum became the number 1 selling jazz artist in 2003 with his album 'Twentysomething' and has since gained a reputation for dabbling in all styles of music. Teaming up with SOIL & "PIMP" SESSIONS, this performance promises to defy any preconceived notions of jazz.
