PizzaExpress Jazz Club (Soho)

Powerhouse seven-piece group, J-Sonics, have been wowing audiences with their genre-hopping blend of jazz, Latin, Brazilian, Afrobeat and funk for the past five years. Coming hot on the heels of their high-energy shows at Ronnie Scott’s, South Coast Jazz Festival and Canary Wharf Jazz Festival, the band return to PizzaExpress Jazz Club to play a mix of retooled Latin and Brazilian jazz classics by the likes of Ed Motta, Flora Purim and Mongo Santamaría alongside their own groove-laden originals as heard on their acclaimed debut album, 'Different Orbits'. Featuring stunning Spanish vocalist Grace Rodson the band includes some of London’s leading players including trumpeter Andy Davies, saxophonist Matt Telfer, guitarist Clement Regert, bassist/bandleader Mike Flynn, drummer Gabor Dornyei and percussionist Jon Newey.
