Hello Skinny in session with Steve Beresford
Jez Nelson presents an exclusive session from psych-dub band Hello Skinny, featuring special guest Steve Beresford on electronics.
Brainchild of drummer Tom Skinner, the 'cosmic psych-dub jazz-mutants' Hello Skinny embrace tricks of technology via an acoustic jazz inheritance. The music is futuristic, but feels warmer and more organic than you might expect - a natural result of Skinner's absorbed experiences with acts ranging from the improv of Alexander Hawkins through to European/African fusion outfit the Owiny Sigoma Band. In this exclusive session for Jazz on 3, Skinner's quintet includes Shabaka Hutchings on sax and Nick Ramm on keys, plus special guest Steve Beresford on electronics, who also lends some old compositions for re-imagination.
Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producers: Peggy Sutton & Chris Elcombe.
