Grammy-winning saxophonist Jean Toussaint released his 12th album 'Live at the Jazz Cafe' in 2019/20 which marked what would have been Art Blakey’s 100th birthday. The music was recorded at the end of an extensive tour to promote Brother Raymond, later winning Album of the Year at the 2019 Jazz FM and Parliamentary Jazz Awards and considered one of the best jazz recordings of 2018 in Jazzwise, The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian and The Sunday Times.
“(Jean Toussaint has) been a genial presence on the UK jazz scene for 30 years, not least as a teacher, and his superb latest album Brother Raymond features more than a dozen of his protégées and colleagues. Last night, only five of them were on stage with him at the Jazz Café for a date on the album tour, but what a wonderful sound they made, uproarious, witty and tightly honed, all at once.”
