Jay Phelps: Live Album Launch
Juju’s is proud to welcome jazz musician and legend Jay Phelps for the live launch of his latest album ‘The Now’! Expect to be taken on a journey of UK jazz and Detroit house. Free entry all night!
Trumpeter, Composer, DJ and Entrepreneur – Jay Phelps has performed with some of the world’s top names. With an instantly recognisable warm and projecting trumpet tone, Canadian born Phelps is a household name on the Jazz scene in the UK and his presence as a DJ is steadily growing.
Phelps’ career has spanned over 20 years and he’s always searching for new endeavours which of late have included radio presenting (Jazz FM, Worldwide FM) and his music casting agency ‘SoulEndvr’ (working with Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO, BBC).
2023 will see Phelps release his seventh album as a leader with Apple Music subsidiary label ‘Platoon’ and continue his Youtube documentary series ‘Ear to the Ground’ featuring artists from the Jazz scene both in the UK and beyond.
One of the leading figures on the London jazz scene for more than 15 years, Phelps displays a fresh approach for his latest offering. A radio presenter with Jazz FM and Worldwide FM, Jay also keeps busy with his documentary series ‘Ear to the Ground’, here the Canadian born trumpeter leads a stellar cast of the UK’s brightest young stars including… David Mrakpor (Blue Lab Beats), Thomas Ford (Chris Dave, Reuben James), Nicola Guida (Secret Night Gang), Harry ‘Mackwood’ Ling (Levitation Orchestra) and more!
In his own words… “The Now takes the listener on a journey from the world renowned underground Jazz scene in London, straight over to Detroit for some floor stomping HoI co-founded Empirical, a band that helped to pave the way for the new Jazz scene in London, which is why I’m thrilled to have London’s finest new talents join me here to add that special flavor. The relentless groove of Detroit House has been growing on me lately, so combining that with my Jazz background seems to create a funky concoction that tastes like a Jazz/House soup…Deliciously Nasty!”
