East London: Space In The Place at The City Arts & Music Project

Space in the Place is The City Art & Music Project’s weekly in-house jazz session. It’s a live jazz jam, for free, for the people of East London, every Wednesday. They will be booking an eclectic range of artists, bands and collectives playing all styles of jazz; classic and straight up, traditional licks and more avant garde, blues and New Orleans, smooth, funk, swing and afrobeat. As Duke Ellington said ‘It’s all music’’ and he knows what he’s talking about.

The Bukky Leo quartet is playing for the launch night on Wednesday 7th April. Raised in Lagos, Nigeria, Bukky was spotted playing sax by afro beat drumming legend Tony Allen and joined his band before moving to London and there getting signed by a fresh faced Gilles Peterson to new label Acid Jazz. Bukky’s subsequent acclaimed releases gained him a nomination for a US African Music Award in New York, and his music covers acid jazz to more afro centric grooves. Bucky tours today as a world class saxophonist or with Tony Allen’s Afro Beat band. A true living legend of the scene.
