London Blues

Featuring the music of Erik Sondhy
Duration: 6:44

Fulfilling a childhood dream, and thanks to his love of all things Beatles, last July Bali-born Erik Sondhy spent six hours in London’s world famous Abbey Road studios. He improvised enough tracks for four albums, which is why this, his first solo album is sub-titled Abbey Road Sessions, Volume 1. Each track has an immediacy and a distinct personality. With "London Blues" Erik’s strong left hand bounces us straight into a striding loop of minimalist boogie-woogie over which his right hand overlays memories plucked from the ethereal funk land.

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.
