About Jazz Lates

About the artist
“JZ Replacement” is a fresh high energy and intense new project by saxophonist Zhenya Strigalev (Eric Harland, Ambrose Akinmusire, Aaron Parks) and drummer Jamie Murray (Sun RaArkestra, Native Dancer). The project was born in London and has already been successfully presented at Love Supreme Festival, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, London Jazz Festival and Porto Jazz Festival. They have also toured in Berlin, Vienna, Spain and Russia. In March they recorded a new album called “Disrespectful” with special guest Tim Lefebvre (David Bowie, Wayne Krantz, Knower…) which will be out in March 2020.
The music is inspired by Zhenya and Jamie’s musical journeys and studies, and these ideas are combined to create an organic and very original sound. Some people hear Indian influences, some Charlie Parker, some Chris Dave or Michael Brecker. The focus here is to create something very tight and precise (which is often not possible with bigger groups) while being totally free and creative. There are a lot of heavy swinging grooves, complex melodies as well as some, more catchy and simple, which will please everybody (although that’s not the goal).
“…fascinatingly intense, winding and staccato performance – a real orchestrated duo…” – London Jazz News
