ACID JAZZ SESSIONS – The Expansions
From the gritty suburbs of South London comes a fresh take on a classic sound. The Expansions craft slick jazz with a funk groove into towering landscapes that reflect the sounds of the city they live in. Drawing influence from the masters of the 1970’s street sounds – Roy Ayers, Dennis Coffey, George Duke and Herbie Hancock – and fusing this with a love of artists such as The Stepkids, Lettuce and Quantic, this four piece will transport you back to the grimy sidewalks of uptown Manhattan, complete with Cadillac and a fur coat.
The 70’s had their own definition when it came to culture, film and music and The Expansions painstakingly emulate the vibe that was ever present in society. From their recordings, which have received support from the likes of Patrick Forge, Dom Servini and Andy Smith, to their personal record collections, the spirit of the 1970’s remains strong. Whether it’s digging out old acid jazz funk tunes that have been sampled by Hip Hops greats, to playing at some of London’s top Jazz venues, The Expansions deliver the soul of the old school to a modern city.###

Check out Shaman Rahman’s 6th Web-episode
Shama Rahman, one of the leading contemporary Tagore artistes, has carved a niche through her devotion to her medium, with her soft lilting voice. Her deep understanding of Tagore’s lyrics and tunes has won her fans at home and abroad. For Shama Rahman, every day is a celebration of the great bard’s life and work.
Explaining what Rabindra Sangeet means to her, she once said eloquently “Through Tagore’s songs and poems, I can express all my inner feelings” and that “Tagore songs enrich me greatly. When I am happy, sad or in trouble, I take shelter in Rabindranath and I like to share that experience with people. The response I get from my audience is my greatest reward”.
Shama Rahman will be appearing at The Pheasantry on November 22nd 2015
