JAY PHELPS DJ SET W/ TRUMPET – Brick Lane Jazz Festival

Phelps has been producing and influencing ground-breaking jazz since his time at university, when he founded and co-led the extraordinary Jazz sensation Empirical, widely understood to have been a major force in the rebirth of the young British jazz scene. Since then, he has played with some of the greatest names in music, from Wynton Marsalis to Amy Winehouse.

London-based, Phelps has developed an on-going love affair with the city’s evolving scenes and genres, as reflected in his exploration of Broken Beat and electronic music across his new EP series ‘Broken Standards’.

Now a radio presenter on WWFM and most recently Jazz FM, forming relationships with other DJ’s has informed Phelps’ desire to approach classic repertoire with a new, refreshing angle.

“As I’ve been a silent fan of the Broken Beat scene here in the UK for some time, my aim was to rearrange a hand full of Jazz standards that I love with inspiration from the rhythms and grooves of Broken Beat” says Phelps.
