I remember being at The Jazz Cafe in London and asking Fred if he was going to play something from his Horny Horns days & he said, ‘Sure, I’ll play some Horny Horns’!
This is a unique opportunity to see Fred Wesley perform for the first time in this legendary club
Fred Wesley is the trombonist, composer, arranger, bandleader and author known worldwide as one of the architects of funk music. Fred’s work with Godfather of Soul James Brown in the 1970s established him as the world’s funkiest trombone player. Today, he plays and records with his own jazz-funk band, the New JBs, and is one-third of the innovative “klezmer-funk” collaboration Abraham Inc.
“We speak of love and happiness: For me, happiness is Fred Wesley playing his horn” – James Brown.
