Let The [Unpopular] Uprising Begin - next Sunday

The flyer very unassumingly lists "Jazz on CD by Michael Edwards" but yours truly is
treating this as the kick-off (football jargon is hot now) of my latest experiment. So, at Jazz in the Gardens on Sunday October 26, it will be the premiere of :

DJ I-kon and the Unpopular Uprising

Unpopular because the selections are not what the general public (at least notthe Jamaican public) will readily recognise, but I'm rising up with them any way. Listen for selections from Fela Kuti, Taj Mahal, Cheik Lo and some interesting collabos form Ziggy Marley and of course, great jazz from the likes of Sonny Rollins, David Murray, Terence Blanchard, Branford Marsalis and more of my favourites.

In between my selections :-) there'll be live music from the ageless Sonny Bradshaw and the Jaamaica big Band, peter Ashbourne & Ashes and my good friend, saxophonist Damon Riley & Friends, as well as featured act, Leas Terry (out of the US) on violin.

Join the Uprising. See You there - - the Gardens (no rain) of the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel
