Tipped as a rising star by Jazzwise and Time Out magazines, Yazz Ahmed’s 2017 album “La Saboteuse” has been widely judged to be UK jazz album of the year, blending western and Middle Eastern influences. Also included in her very talented band are the exceptional George Crowley (sax) and Ralph Wyld (vibes). Expect undulating rhythms and melody resonant with the sounds and sensations of the Middle East, and sonorous trumpet lines.
