Neue Grafik is an all-round artist who made his name as a producer and house-broken beat DJ but he's also a talented pianist. During his many trips to London, he met and befriended the city's new jazz scene (Nubya Garcia, Joe Armon-Jones, Vels Trio, Emma-Jean Thackray etc.) and they welcomed their French cousin with open arms. He then recorded a double acoustic EP and formed the Neue Grafik Ensemble which saw him open the UK's consulate for groove in Paris.
Line-up : Neue Grafik (p), Emma-Jean Thackray (t), Matt Gedrych (b), Dougal Taylor (dms)
