Presented by Jazz re:freshed

Tenderlonious led jazz quartet Ruby Rushton and their 22a imprint have been at the forefront of the UK jazz scene since the release of their debut album in 2015.

Follow up albums were met with mass acclaim receiving award nominations and regular airtime from Gilles Peterson, who refers to their work as “mind-blowing stuff”, Jazz FM, BBC Radio 6 and many more.

Their music is rooted in the spiritual concepts of jazz heroes such as John Coltrane and Yusef Lateef, whilst adopting influences from hip hop, Afrobeat and the UK underground culture. Expect high energy, freeform, contemporary jazz with nods to the Headhunters and Weather Report heyday.
