Preview: Joe Armon-Jones & Maxwell Owin, Binker Golding Quartet, Maisha @ The Jazz Cafe (London; 6th December 2017)  


The evening of the 6th December will see a mash-up of afrobeat, two-step, house and dub. However, the thread that tailors this music together is the jazz which forms the well-fitting fashion.

Two housemates, Joe Armon-Jones and Maxwell Owin are performing as part of new outfit Idiom. Having worked with many touring bands, this is a new venture with fledgling Peckham record label Yam. They bring a beefed-up South London influence with dark keys alongside the dirty grimy bass lines from Owin.

Binker Golding is the saxophonist of the moment and understands the significance that music has on your mood. Prepare to be taken on a personalised journey which has been specially designed for the night-time audience.

Maisha are an unsigned act, though not for much longer. They bring tangible West African influences with heavy swing, as well as notable nods to Pharoah Sanders and Alice Coltrane, so don’t expect to hear melodies that keep to any rigid form.

This is a night to explore new jazz artists with heavy world music influences. There will be something to suit everyone’s style with such a varied mixture of talent
