Dakhla Brass

Riding high on the wave of brass band-influenced jazz, Bristol-based Dakhla Brass are back with a new album – Murmur – on Impossible Ark Records. With their first new release since BBC Introducing & Jamie Cullum presented them at Montreal Jazz Festival in 2016, the unusual line up of four brass players + drummer is augmented with Nostalgia 77 double bassist Riaan Vosloo. Expect a lattice of intricate brass lines over simmering drums, flurries of improvisation and carefully-crafted through-arrangements.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
