Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy about Classic Album Sunday sessions at Jazz Café: Video

Camden Town’s revamped Jazz Cafe presents series of album playbacks and related live shows under the auspices of Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy (pictured) and her Classic Album Sundays sessions banner.

The series kicks off on 5 February with trumpeter Yelfris Valdes(formerly of Yussef Kamaal) interpreting Donald Byrd’s 1973 Blue Note release, Black Byrd. Things continue on 5 March with drummer/bandleader Jake Long, of emerging groove-led band Maisha, who appears with an expansive line-up of trumpeter Dylan Jones, saxophonist/flautist Nubya Garcia, bassist Mutale Chashi, keyboardist Amané Suganami, guitarist Artie Zaitz and percussionist Yahael Camara-Onono for a widescreen take on Miles Davis’ epochal 1970 album, Bitches Brew. The series concludes on 17 April with electronic musician and composer Ben Hayes’ interpretation of hugely influential electronica artist Aphex Twin’s Selected Ambient Works 85–92.

Murphy first presented Classic Albums Sundays on BBC 6music and Worldwide FM, and has since held CAS listening sessions at The V&A Museum, Royal Albert Hall and The British Library, but the Jazz Cafe run will be the first to feature live performances of the records themselves.
