Kamaal Williams UK

raw energy fusing jazz with the sound of urban London

Kamaal Williams is the latest project led by prolific South London artist Henry Wu. As the mastermind behind Yussef Kamaal, Wu released a landmark album for British jazz with 2016’s Black Focus. This latest collective continues the tradition of fusing jazz with the sound of urban London, with a live show that captures all the raw energy for which Wu has become known.

The ensemble features Josh McKenzie aka McKnasty on drums, a formidable force who was playing and touring with acts such as Dennis Rollins and Robert Glasper from the age of 17 and Pete Martin on bass, an original member of Courtney Pine’s infamous line up in the late 90’s. With shows at Glastonbury and Koko, as well as worldwide festival appearances behind them, the band have already become an in- demand outfit in their own right.
