An outreach event exploring the influence and impact the Christian gospel message had on the development of Jazz.
Some very sad news. Our dear friend and band member Melvin Reeves passed away in Nov 2020. We will greatly miss him. He was such a character and we all consider it a privilege to have known him and performed with him on this project! We have many fond memories of him and we look forward to when we can jam with him again in the new creation!

The evening explores 2 parallel stories, 2 stories that are intertwined in a profound way. The 2 stories are the history of Jazz, particularly the roots of Jazz and also ‘His story’, history itself. The stories are both framed and united by a common theme, the theme of slavery.
“The best evangelistic event I have seen in years!”
The Roots of Jazz CD recorded live at Carey Baptist Church Reading is out (£10) – profits go to anti-slavery charities.
