Get Down: Yussef Dayes Takes Jazz Back

Hot on the heels of the release of his debut solo studio album "Black Classical Music", South London multi-instrumentalist, producer and drummer Yussef Dayes chats to Chris Gill on Get Down ahead of his upcoming Australian tour in early 2024.

Yussef Dayes shares his insights from deep inside the hotbed of London's new jazz scene, encapsulating a multi-generational cohort of musicians drawing from old and new influences to breathe new life into the city's rich history of jazz. Listen back to hear how Yussef Dayes created a modern jazz classic, and according to Chris Gill, how he has cemented himself alongside some of the great jazz percussionists.
