jazz re:freshed presents Robert Mitchell

The jazz re:freshed guys launched a new blog on which they present footage from their weekly nights at London’s Mau Mau Bar. The latest addition is this 2012 recording of Robert Mitchell performing with vibraphonist Corey Mwamba and percussionist HKB Finn.

Kaidi Tatham live at Jazz Re:freshed

We used to do this more regularly, but I don’t recall any decent recordings of Kaidi Tatham at what’s he’s doing best: playing the keys. The fine people of Jazz Re:freshed uploaded this one moments ago, it shows Kaidi playing at one of their concerts back in 2011. The first track is Do What You Gotta Do taken from In Search of Hope, not sure about the second.

Note to Adam and Bunny: Great job, love how the video looks!

Kaidi at Jazz Re:freshed


It has become a kind of tradition by now that in the last week of August, the great Kaidi Tatham is gracing London with a live appearance. We’ve posted videos of these events more than just once, so if you’re in London this Thursday make sure not to miss this show at Mau Mau Bar!

The concert is once again hosted by Jazz Re:freshed, who also released the Kaidi’s 5ive a year ago. For more details, visit their website and check the Facebook page for the event. Hope to see you there!

Kaidi Tatham – Organic Juggernaut (live)

As the latest show by Benji B has a Maida Vale session by Kaidi Tatham, I was looking on YouTube for any videos of that. Coincidence or not, I found this newly uploaded video from last year’s album launch party.

Rumor has it there’ll be a new album sometime this year. In the meantime you can pick up his last one, or educate yourself by listening to K15’s excellent Introduction to Kaidi Tatham.

And as if there wasn’t enough coincidence involved yet, Kaidi Tatham will play at the Jazz Re:freshed birthday party tonight!

Kaidi’s 5ive Album Launch

We have featured so many videos of Kaidi Tatham performing live (this and that and this) by now and we still can’t get enough. Here’s another one showcasing the man’s genius, recorded at his album launch party last week at London’s Mau Mau Bar.

If you haven’t picked up your copy of Kaidi’s 5ive, we strongly suggest doing so. You can buy the CD on the Jazz Refreshed site and the digital release from the Bandcamp page.

Richard Spaven – Spaven’s 5ive

London’s Richard Spaven, who has played with everyone from Robert Mitchell to Flying Lotus, Kaidi Tatham to Mark de Clive-Lowe, has finally completed his first solo album.

The album is only the first release in a series of mini-albums on the Jazz re:freshed label. And starting tomorrow, Spaven’s 5ive should be out in stores. In any case you can grab yourself a copy at the official release party, taking place at Mau Mau Bar on December 9, 2010.

Kissey Asplund at Jazz Refreshed

Here’s another one of those Jazz Re:freshed sessions at London’s Mau Mau Bar. It was recorded in October 2008 already, but as it’s been played only 427 times since, I took this as reason to dig it out for you.

The performance comes of course from Sweden’s Kissey Asplund, a great singer who is writing a nice blog herself.

Many more of the performances at Jazz Refreshed can be watched on their YouTube channel!

Robert Mitchell 3io plays 4hero

The Robert Mitchell 3io, winner of the Worldwide Award for the best jazz album, were guests at Jazz re:freshed last Thursday at London’s Mau Mau Bar.

Robert Mitchell 3io has its roots in its leaders long-running band, Panacea. The absolutely ridiculous drummer, Richard Spaven and the bad man bassist Tom Mason are the rhythm section of Panacea and, together with Robert, have been developing a real signature in this jazz trio format.

In the video above, the trio is playing an interpretation of 4hero‘s Third Stream, a classic from the Two Pages album.

Kaidi Tatham Quartet at Jazz Re:freshed

Turns out the Kaidi Tatham Trio was actually a quartet and Jazz Re:freshed host Adam Rock captured their performance at London’s Mau Mau Bar on video.

More on the classic jazz-tip with Kaidi on keys, Shabaka Hutchin on sax, Karl Rasheed Abel on bass and Richard Spaven on the drums.

Kaidi Tatham Trio at Jazz Re:freshed

This Thursday, London’s Mau Mar Bar is hosting Jazz Re:freshed with the one and only Kaidi Tatham, in fact the Kaidi Tatham Trio, in concert. As if you needed a teaser, have a look at this video Kaidi doing Roy Ayers.

This week at Jazz Re:freshed we have the amazing talent that is Kaidi Tatham rocking it trio style. This is a warm up to his forthcoming solo album release, which I can assure is gonna be ridiculous!

As if that wasn’t enough, we have the legendary DJ Pogo spinning tunes on the night. With his imminent emigration to Brazil, this’ll probably be one of the last times (if not the last time) he will be spinning in this country for a very long time.

And all of this for a fiver?
