Soweto Kinch's ‘The Legend of Mike Smith’ at Dean Clough

Multi award-winning jazz alto saxophonist and hip-hop star Soweto Kinch plays Dean Clough on Saturday 1 December as part of a UK tour with his new trio featuring Karl Rashid-Abel (double bass) and Shaney Forbes (drums).

A contemporary take on The Seven Deadly Sins, it's a stunning show by all accounts - but will Kinch's outstanding musicianship outweigh the non-metropolitan bias against his hip-hop interludes? Well. Jazz shouldn't be about compromises. The show's catchline is 'expect the unexpected!' and we'll take our chances... See Gig Guide

"A real tour de force". (John Fordham – The Guardian)
