22a label founder, flautist, saxophonist, producer and DJ extraordinaire Ed Cawthorne - aka Tenderlonious - has gained a reputation as one of the hardest working, most well respected and influential figures in London’s burgeoning jazz scene. His 2018 album “The Shakedown” featuring The 22archestra has now sold over 5000 physical units and received over 2.5 million streams on Spotify alone. The album gained high praise and support from some of the key tastemakers and DJ’s in the world right now, including, Gilles Peterson, Lefto, Bradley Zero, Huey Morgan, Benji B, Jamz Supernova, Henry Wu and many more.
Whether performing with either of his bands Ruby Rushton, or The 22archestra, the live show transport’s you back to the 70's Headhunters era, whilst still adopting the spiritual concepts of John Coltrane and Yusef Lateef. Audiences can expect to be treated to high energy compositions, fusing flavours of afro beat, hip hop, and latin jazz.
