This young, fiery crew includes Reuben James, the late Abram Wilson’s pianist, who was named by London Jazz News as the other outstanding young musician of this year’s Swanage Jazz Festival. Clark Tracey, one of the most in-demand drummers around, shares the great Art Blakey’s ‘other’ talent; the development of young musicians and the wish to represent them to a wider public.
