Julian Joseph interviews emerging UK bassist Shez Raja and profiles his brand new album Soho Live which features guest appearances from saxophonists Shabaka Hutchings, Soweto Kinch and Gilad Atzmon. Shez trained on the violin from the age of 9 but switched to the bass when he was 13, which allowed him to explore his love of jazz and hi-energy grooves, and has toured with Elephant Talk, Loka and platinum selling hip-hop artist MC Lyte.
