ABRAM WILSON SEXTET
Having recently released his debut album with the multi-awarding Dune Records, Abram Wilson is next in line to make his name as the most exciting trumpeter to hit the UK scene in a long, long time (and he’s a mean vocalist too!). Born in New Orleans and a graduate from the prestigious New Orleans Center For Creative Arts (NOCCA), Abram is no stranger to the British jazz scene having recently worked with two of its leading stars - he’s the man behind the amazing voice and trumpet on Soweto Kinch’s Mercury-nominated album, Conversations With The Unseen and on Denys Baptiste’s album, Let Freedom Ring! Abram puts the dance back into jazz, incorporating hip hop and New Orleans-influenced grooves, blending the rhythmic qualities of artists such as Herlin Riley and The Roots. The Abram Wilson band will appeal as much to the feet as to the ears!
