Jazz And Hip Hop

Soweto Kinch, the award-winning saxophonist and rapper, looks at the interaction between jazz and hip hop.

Is one a Bohemian, intellectual pursuit, while the other caters for gun-toting misogynists?

With the help of music from performers as varied as Cab Calloway, Slim Gaillard, Stetsasonic, Quasimoto and Oliver Lake, Soweto digs deep into the cross-fertilisation of genres, and plays examples live in the studio - with his quartet, including Femi Temowo (guitar), Neil Charles (bass) and Troy Miller (drums).
