“My love of freedom in all aspects of life brought me to search for freedom within music. Luckily for me I grew up in King’s Cross, so as a teenager, visits to my record shop ‘ Mole Jazz’ were almost a daily occurrence. The guys who owned the shop were fully immersed in the free jazz scene and pointed me in the right direction of ‘who to check out’. On my quest, I stumbled across ‘Mujician’; the seminal band featuring the titans Keith Tippet, Tony Levin, Paul Rogers and Paul Dunmall. I was mesmerised.
To be invited by Paul Dunmall to play with this incredible line up featuring Mark Sanders (drums) and Olie Brice (bass) in Birmingham is such an honour for me. I wanted to extend the invitation to Paul and invite the band to the Vortex.
Freedom is still alive, catch it while you can!” – Nikki Yeoh
