Sugar Beats Search For Peace
Sugar Beats have a new album which is worth checking out - drop over to their MySpace to get a preview.
Here's a blurb on the band:
The band came about through a desire to make good quality music using real musicians whilst, at the same time, moving jazz forwards. After putting on a series of club nights at Birmingham's Medicine Bar, which consisted of a set by a live "jazz" band with DJs playing Sun Ra and Roy Ayers alongside Madlib and Bugz in the Attic, Chris and Leo put a band together to combine these diverse influences into a single live unit. 2 years of refining and gigging later, and the first album is out now.
Highlghts include gigs in Edinburgh, London, Oxford and Birmingham playing alongside the likes of Dom Servini, Phil Asher and Dego (4 Hero). More Recently they have supported Norman Jay (at the Cheltenham Jazz festival), Gilles Peterson and Bugz in the Attic.
