“Rocket fuelled groove jazz” ~ Jazz FM

J-Sonics is a six-piece collective who have emerged over recent years as one of London’s hottest groove-driven jazz bands.

J-Sonics features some of London’s finest musicians – all solo artists in their own right – but all collaborating within J-Sonics’ exciting mix of memorable originals and re-tooled jazz, Brazilian, Afro and rare-groove tunes.

Alec Dankworth Spanish Accents

“Dankworth’s playing has a captivating bounce, his own themes gently personal, yet deeply rooted in the idiom. And the resourceful Phil Robson plays Spanish guitar as if raised on it.”John Fordham, The Guardian

Alec Dankworth’s long-standing love of all things Spanish provide the inspiration for this group. Metheny, Corea, even Rodrigo are reinvented alongside traditional folk songs and originals in flamenco rhythms creating a wonderful and authentic Spanish sound.

The band features the beautiful voice of daughter Emily Dankworth and a heady mix of top British musicians – saxophonist Mark Lockheart, Chris Garrick’s gorgeous violin, and Alec Dankworth’s bass interweave with the genuinely Spanish drumwork of Demi Garcia and guitar of Phil Robson to complete this unusual line-up.
