      Cambridge Jazz Festival: RICHARD SPAVEN + VERTAAL

      is one of the most unique artists in the world. Triple threat drummer, composer, and producer, his voice rings true with clarity and promise. He is the point where jazz meets the world”
      José James (Blue Note Records)

      Richard Spaven’s widely acclaimed album The Self explores and defies genres, from Drum and Bass to Broken Beat to Dubstep and more. Spaven has gained international recognition and praise for supplying the drums for many artists on stage and in the studio. José James, Guru’s Jazzmatazz, Flying Lotus, The Cinematic Orchestra, TY and more recently Jameszoo.

      Vertaal (Ajit Gill and Theo Howarth) are a progressive, jazz-funk duo, flirting with the sounds of hip-hop, electronic soul and all kinds of exotic melody.

      Taking influence from artists such as Yussef Kamaal, Haitus Kaiyote, Robert Glasper and Alfa Mist, their ‘on-the-fly’ live shows feature an eclectic host of guest players and improvised interpretations of original songs making for a truly energising and unique musical experience every show.
