Info for Beautiful Vinyl Hunter
The genre-blurring UK jazzman returns in full force with a 15 track album featuring Makaya McCraven, Keyon Harrold, Moses Boyd, Judi Jackson, Theo Croker and more.
Born and raised in South London, Ashley Henry’s rapidly growing international profile recently embarked on an extensive world tour with Christine And The Queens who considers him as “the ultimate piano player”.
“My music is a straight up reflection of who I am; London in all its mixed up glory. The immigrant in me has musical roots that are traced back to the 1600s, so it’s important my music today reflects that jazz alpha narrative across different genres and generations”.
Beautiful Vinyl Hunter is a provocative 15-track collection that effortlessly guides the listener through a variety of genres, ranging from contemporary jazz, grime, punk to hip hop and showcases Henry’s ability to knit all of his influences into a seamless tapestry – transporting jazz music to new realms of beauty.
