British jazz is really fabulous right now, and Theon Cross seems to be in the center of it all.

 

By the way, for those of you that prefer streaming music to buying it, this is one reason not to give up your Tidal subscription. Tidal carries almost all of the Bandcamp catalogue, and that's where you'll find Theon Cross, Nérija, Nubya Garcia, Maisha, and many other current British jazz musicians. And be sure to look out for the upcoming album of Sarah Tandy!

Hopefully it will be in Qobuz in a day or two. A group he plays in, Sons of Kemet, is also good.
