The Music of Otis Redding performed by Mudibu and the Jezebel Sextet
Originally commissioned by Soul Cookers Records for Saint Paul Soul Jazz Festival 2008, this authentic celebration of Otis Redding's music pairs charismatic Burundian singer songwriter Mudibu with Hammond and horns from The Jezebel Sextet.
The result is a truly uplifting show steeped in raw soul and late1960s R'n'B that is guaranteed to get you on the good foot - a show where dancing The show list features over 20 Otis Redding classics, performed live backed by a seven piece band with Hammond organ, 3 piece horn section and 100% authentic instrumentation and arrangements.
Recent performances include The Jazz Cafe, The Boisdale Club, The Hideaway Club, and Hootananny in London. Headline festival appearances include Saint Paul Soul Jazz Festival; Roubaix Vintage Weekender; Tighten Up Festival in Marseille; and Grand Casino Soulstice Party in Nice.
