Preview: Love Supreme Jazz Festival @ Glynde Place (Glynde; Friday 29th June to Sunday 1st July 2018)

Love Supreme 2018

Set against the backdrop of the historic Glynde Place, Love Supreme has rapidly taken its place amongst the elite summer festivals in the UK. Now in its 6th year, the festival has regularly procured big names in the world of jazz and soul music, and this year is no different. From soul singing legend Mavis Staples to current tastemaker Tom Misch, there are so many flavours to sample.

Among the many legends on this year’s line-up, don’t miss out on the non-stop party that is Earth, Wind & Fire, the inter-galactic funk of George Clinton and his P-Funk family, or –  celebrating his 70th birthday this year – the blue-eyed soul of former-Traffic frontman, Steve Winwood.

One-time bass player for Miles Davis, Dave Holland brings his trio to the stage for some very earthy sounds, flanked by saxophonist Chris Potter and tabla maestro, Zakir Hussain. If you’re more inclined to come for a dance, check out the new kings of desert blues, Mali’s Songhoy Blues. MF (Music For) Robots deliver their own brand of funky disco, drawing on their previous incarnation as The Brand New Heavies.

Daughter of soul singer Donny, Lalah Hathaway will deliver her vocal gymnastics with aplomb; if you’ve never heard someone singing chords, now might be your chance. The jazz-funk of Ezra Collective will really stir the festival up, as will the dynamic drumming of British jazz sensation Moses Boyd, a MOBO Award winner, who appears on the same bill as one of his heroes, afrobeat legend Tony Allen. Alongside Boyd, saxophonist Nubya Garcia is another luminary in the current resurgence of jazz in the UK. With over 4.5m views on YouTube, Alfa Mist are certainly causing waves, with their highly contemplative, sometimes filmic jazz set. Well worth a visit!

Love Supreme offers something for everybody. Whether it’s a nostalgic trip back to the 1980s with Brit-funk icons Level 42, or the spacious jazz offerings of Samuel EaglesSpirit, come rain or shine (hopefully the latter!), this corner of Sussex will be awash with glorious music, celebrated to the fullest.
