|A Great day in Hackney
Photo published by the Premises Studios Twitter account
It is thirty years since Dill Katz and Colin Dudman founded Premises Studios in Hoxton. Today a mighty collection of British jazz musicians who have worked at the studios assembled there for a photo in the spirit of Art Kane’s “A Great day in Harlem”. Courtney Pine and Talvin Singh were interviewed by Alice Bhandhukravi for BBC London TV News.
Also visible are Zoe Rahman, Alex Wilson, Julian Joseph, Julian Siegel, Gary Crosby, Tony Hayned, Carleen Anderson, Annie Whitehead. Michael Mondesir, Cleveland Watkiss, Viv Broughton, James Pearson, Winston Rollins, Robert Mitchell, Fayyaz Virji and Jason Yarde…..
… and John Etheridge, Peter Conway, Ian Ballamy, Tim Richards, Zara McFarlane, Alex Garnett, Colin Dudman, Dylan Howe…
Thanks – we were hoping someone would do that. Any more?!
Nice to see this – it's an important part of London's musical history. I recorded many amazing players there and even had my wedding reception there (which Colin, Dill and a bunch of other great players performed at)
