ALBUM LAUNCH!! PLUS SPECIAL GUEST JIM MULLEN
‘The Drawtones’ return to Rye with not only a feast of iconic jazz and blues, soul and funk grooves, but also with legendary guitarist, Jim Mullen, who guests on their new album ‘Groovin’ Magic’, being launched live tonight!
You may know Jim from Claire Martin’s award-winning album ‘Bumpin’ – a tribute to Wes Montgomery; from ‘Average White Band’; from ‘Morrissey-Mullen’, or simply as “One of the world’s finest jazz musicians” (Martin Taylor MBE).
Emulating the great Hammond organ combos with material from such artists as Jimmy Smith, Jack McDuff, Jimmy McGriff, George Benson, Booker-T, Junior Walker, Grover Washington, The Crusaders, George Duke, Steely Dan, Ronnie Scott’s Club favourites, ‘The Drawtones’, claim ownership by way of their masterful musicianship and proven jazz pedigree.
Julian Nicholas has a distinguished playing career with luminaries such as Jimmy Witherspoon, Harry ‘Sweets’ Edison, Carleen Anderson and ‘Loose Tubes’, and has supported Nina Simone twice! “His beautiful and creative playing makes Julian one of my favourite saxophonists” - Bobby Wellins
Rod Pooley has steered the ship from behind the multi-textured Hammond organ on voyages with Jools Holland Band’s Derek Nash, and Martin Shaw, who says “awesome songs and infectious grooves”, and Dennis Rollins, who says “…always groovin’ hard!” of Rod and the band.
The awesome talents of Jess Dann on drums and Dan Dotor on bass complete a top-draw line-up!
