Henry Spencer – The Survivor and The Descendant

The economics of UK jazz mean that there’s rarely decent marketing budgets, or even well-designed packaging that put the music on a level playing field with other genres. Videos for new releases are also a rarity except for those lucky enough to have picked up support from mainstream media. So there’s much to admire with the approach of trumpeter and composer Henry Spencer whose powerful music and playing is accompanied by such as this recent video. Pop onto his youtube channel for some live performances too.
