MOBO award-nominated The James Taylor Quartet are one of the most important jazz-pop crossover outfits in British live musical history and have set the standard for the coolest sounds in funky acid jazz.
Their relentlessly entertaining tunes take inspiration from the rare-groove style funk, and boogaloo funk of the ’60s and ’70s, and their fired-up signature tune, The Theme from Starsky and Hutch, cemented their reputation as masters of the jazz-funk-r’n’b scene.
Taylor himself is one of the great British instrumentalists of his generation and artists such as Tom Jones, The Pogues and U2 have all featured James and his distinctive Hammond sound on their albums.
Live, the band is explosive with a breathtaking, diverse unmatched back catalogue. This is a night not to be missed!
