As an incredibly talented and flexible pianist, Ashley Henry is capable of moving between different worlds, while still maintaining his devoted roots in jazz.
“My music is a straight-up reflection of who I am; London in all its mixed-up glory. The immigrant in me has musical roots traced back to the 1940’s, so it’s important my music reflects that jazz narrative across different genres and generations”.
“Beautiful Vinyl Hunter” is, in essence, a continuous search for identity, for the spirit that is in all of us, but that sometimes proves not easy to find.
Beautiful Vinyl Hunter is a provocative 15-track collection that effortlessly guides the listener through a variety of genres, ranging from contemporary jazz, grime, punk to hip hop and showcases Henry’s ability to knit all of his influences into a seamless tapestry – transporting jazz music to new realms of beauty.
