Kamaal Williams
Kamaal Williams
Kamaal Williams is the latest project led by prolific South London artist Henry Wu. As the mastermind behind Yussef Kamaal, Wu released a landmark album for British jazz with 2016's Black Focus Records. Williams has drawn attention in recent years for an adventurous sound that draws on jazz, funk, soul, hip-hop, house and beyond.

A natural evolution from his 'Yussef Kamaal' project (crowned the Breakthrough Act of 2017 at the 2017 Jazz FM Awards), The Return shows clear visionary jazz influences, blended with all kinds of textures, sounds and signals from the over-saturated London streets. Dubbed "a fascinating statement" by Clash Music, the 10-track collection featuring guitarist Mansur Brown draws inspiration from Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea and is bound to push beyond the boundaries expected of the jazz genre.

The live ensemble features
Henry Wu - Keys
Greg Paul - Drums
Marlon Spears - Bass

Witness the unmissable Kamaal Williams' experience with the live debut of The Return in North America this February / March.

Celebrating the launch of his sophomore album 'HONEYCOMB' via TARTELET RECORDS and !K7 Records, jitwam presents, a sensory and aural journey through the inner beyond.

HONEYCOMB follows jitwam’s well-received EPs on his own imprint, The Jazz Diaries, which secured him a spot on Moodymann’s DJ Kicks compilation, as well as a steady string of gigs that took his talents from a country-wide NTS-Radio tour in India, to shows in Europe and the US, where he opened for legendary jazz-funk artist Roy Ayers.
