I just uploaded “Podcast #27: 21.07.11 A Tribute to Alphonso Mizell” to www.mixcloud.com – listen now!
Caractacus the Conga Conqueror brought his Afro Latin Ensemble back to The Jazz Meet this past Sunday for an extended play after their very serious session at The Shoreditch last month. For a change we had a full day of live music as a trio from the Afro Latin Ensemble namely Miles Danso (Double Bass), Frank Williams (Sax) and the legendary Richard Bailey (Drums) joined our very own Jessica Lauren for an impromptu quartet set prior to the main event.

This Sunday, we’ve got another Latin Jazz special with the mighty all-star lineup of Caractacus the Conga
