Grooveyard with Andrew James & Danny Fitzgerald (December ’17)
Written by Josh Aitman on 2nd January 2018
Local favourites Andy and Danny bring a new show jammed with danceable boogies, get-down funk and smooth soul cuts.
Andy James has been a regular on the local crate diggers circuit in recent times, playing choice cuts from his collection of soul, funk, latin, jazz and hip hop records at venues such as Kazimier Garden and Café Tabac, where he held a celebrated weekend residency for some years. Danny Fitzgerald has recently produced Calypso and Highlife compilations for renowned London label Soul Jazz Records. His selections of Jazz-based music from the Caribbean, Latin America, West Africa and beyond have warmed stages for the likes of Quantic, Norman Jay, and Gilles Peterson.
This month, Andy and Danny look at all the amazing music filling their records bags over 2017 focusing largely on new and emerging talent out of the UK’s thriving jazz scene!
