Myles Sanko / Snowboy & The Latin Section

Date:Thu 22 Nov
Time:7pm (doors)
Venue:J1
Price:£18 adv.

UK based soul singer Myles Sanko "The Lovechild of Soul Music" is something very special and his new album ‘Forever Dreaming’ is quite simply stunning, with a musical quality that is rare indeed today. Consisting of eleven deep meaningful soul grooves, jazzy musical perfection and a play time of approximately 40:19 minutes, the album has a vintage feel that could easily have been recorded 40 years ago, were it not for it's fresh contemporary twist. Ranging from the melodic Motown sounding title track "Forever Dreaming“ through to the spiritual acid jazz of "Save My Soul“ and the dancer "Shooting Star, this is a superb album packed with beautifully recorded Fender Rhodes, flute, vibraphone, percussion and all the instrumentation you'd expect from a good soul record.

 
There can be no denying that the pyrotechnic Snowboy and the Latin Section are unquestionably Europe's leading Afro Cuban Jazz group. From their debut release in 1985, they have released 16 albums and toured the world. Led by the Snowboy (who has also worked with the likes of Amy Winehouse, James Taylor Quartet, Incognito, Lisa Stansfield, Mark Ronson, Basia, Simply Red, Mica Paris and more), the band feature a who’s-who of the UK’s most exciting and fiery Jazz and Latin players.
 
Their music draws on Salsa, Mambo and Latin Jazz, and captures the block party feel of 1970’s New York, inspired, as ever, by the greats such as Eddie Palmieri and Tito Puente. Their current album 'New York Afternoon' reached Number 1 in the Latin Jazz chart and Number 6 in the Jazz chart on Amazon, and was the Number 1 Salsa album on the Colombian radio station 'Salsa Exitos Del Mundo'.
 
They are without doubt one of the best live acts around and excite audiences whenever they play, check this footage out snowboylive and see for yourself!
