Love Supreme 2018
Rough Trade On Tour
Rough Trade will be taking our pop-up shop to Love Supreme 2018, and in preparation we've compiled a selection of jazz influenced albums from this year's lineup and beyond.
Portico Quartet - Untitled (AITAOA #2)
Portico Quartet has always been an impossible band to pin down. Sending out echoes of jazz, electronica, ambient music and minimalism, the group have created their own singular sound. They played an impressive instore at Rough Trade East this year in support of Untitled (AITAOA #2), and we look forward to seeing them again at the festival.
Kamaal Williams - The Return
Whilst not performing live at Love Supreme, band leader Henry Wu will be DJing at one of the after parties alongside fellow UK producer Eric Lau. Wu and his band played instore at Rough Trade East last month to a packed-out crowd, and his band's debut album The Return is a Rough Trade favourite and a product of the burgeoning underground Jazz scene coming out of London.
Chris Dave and The Drumhedz - Chris Dave and The Drumhedz
An impressive and long-awaited debut full-length album from band leader and drummer Chris Dave, released on the historic Blue Note label. The LP includes nearly 50 Drumhedz, spanning core crew members like Pino Palladino (bass), to old familiars like James Poyser (The Roots) and Shafiq Husayn (Sa-Ra), to fresh guests like Anderson Paak, Anna Wise and Goapele.
