Reviews of our 2015 International Jazz Day Concert 2015

“Sean Corby’s spoken introductions and MC’ing were exemplary, and brought home clearly and emphatically the virtues, the importance and the unashamed idealism of this project, based on “music which expresses optimism in the face of adversity.” – London Jazz News

“The Human Revolution Orchestra presented a deeply thoughtful and exciting concert, and as Sean Corby aptly put it, demonstrated “optimism in the face of adversity”” –  Jazzwize

“Eubanks’ closing blues-rocker, dedicated to Jimi Hendrix, that brought the crowd to cheers, with the bugged trombone thrillingly evoking Hendrix’s famous guitar wail, and band guitarist Carl Orr not far behind with a howling bottleneck solo.” – The Guardian

 

“Jazz has long stood for the breaking down of ethnic, religious and gender barriers… it shows what human beings are capable of in terms of transforming their hearts and spirit. This echoes the Buddhist principle of ‘turning poison into medicine’ where individuals create value for themselves and others out of challenging situations”

“This venture has come a long way in one year: last year the celebration was at the small SGI-UK centre in Brixton; this year, it completely packed out Kings Place Hall One.”
