PizzaExpress Jazz Club (Soho)

The Filthy Six are back at the club, performing new music from their forthcoming LP, as well as material from their acclaimed EP “Soho Filth”. Their soaring horns, blistering guitar and gut-wrenching organ are fuelled by one of the hardest grooving rhythm sections around, producing a hip-shakingly powerful mixture of jazz, funk and boogaloo totally in keeping with the finest traditions of the late 60s Blue Note/Prestige sound.
