A further impressive chunk of the Love Supreme Festival line-up has been announced, with De la Soul, Incognito and Imelda May among the names grabbing my attention.
Jazz FM‘s greenfield festival of jazz, soul, blues and more is back at Glynde Place in Sussex (July 4-6) for its second year, having been given a glowing 10 out of 10 last time.
De La Soul will be closing the Sunday night with hits from their 20+ year hip hop career performed as a full 10-piece live band.
Also appearing on Sunday will be the platinum-selling Imelda May, whose music is a foot-tapping meld of rockabilly, jazz and blues, while acid jazzers Incognito take to the stage on Saturday, as they celebrate their 35th Anniversary.
Other new names announced this week are James Tormé, son of Mel Tormé and a Jazz FM presenter, and the MOBO-nominated singer-songwriter Natalie Williams who perform two sets over the weekend – one with her own band and the other fronting the popular Soul Family who will be taking their monthly residency at Ronnie Scott’s to the open fields of Glynde.
And another exciting addition is Scandinavian-British jazz trio Phronesis, described by the Daily Telegraph as “the most electrifying experience to be had in British jazz”.
Add to that, the names previously announced, including Jamie Cullum, Gregory Porter, Soul II Soul, Snarky Puppy, and Laura Mvula, and it is shaping up to be another stunning weekend.
If you’re tempted, here are the details and ticket info.
