Ghost-Note's "Swagism" Tour hits London
24 November 2018
ThePurpleVision were privileged to be in the audience to see Ghost Note at the historic Ronnie Scott's in London's Soho, as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival. We're hoping to get GhostNote to play at one of our upcoming events, and this gig only confirmed we're pursuing the right calibre of artists. To give you a sense of what we experienced, their bio reads like a who's who of the most innvoative jazz musicians around:
"Ghost-Note is the brain child of multi-Grammy Award winning artists Robert Sput Searight and Nate Werth, inspired by the influences of James Brown, J Dilla, and the Beastie Boys, all the way to folkloric West African, Afro-Cuban, and Brazilian samba grooves.
"Ghost-Note’s impressive rotating roster of heavy hitters combine their decades of experience to create a night of unforgettable musical madness. Band members include Sylvester Onyejiaka (Prince, Quantic) on flute, tenor, and baritone sax, Jonathan Mones (Funky Knuckles, RC and the Gritz) on flute, alto, and tenor saxophone, A.J. Brown (Fred Hammond) on bass, internet star Dywane “MonoNeon” Thomas (Prince) on bass and guitar, Justin Stanton (Snarky Puppy) on keyboards, Daniel Jones (Jay-Z, Janet Jackson, Justin Timberlake) on keyboards, Nick Werth (Galaxe, Yak Attack) on xylosynth, Mike Jelani Brooks (Kirk Franklin, RC & the Gritz) on tenor saxophone, and Alvin Ford Jr. (Pretty Lights, Dumpstaphunk) on drums."
