Exclusive Premiere: Tenderlonious “Raga”


We are proud to be the first to share this very special version of Tubby Hayes’ “Raga”, by Ed Cawthorne, aka Tenderlonious, and friends. Jazz Detective Records draw a beautiful new connection between distant generations of leading British jazz musicians. Taken from “The Piccolo – TENDER plays TUBBY”, due for release on May 29, 2020.

22a founder, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Tenderlonious heads up this incredibly special release for Jazz Detective Records, paying homage to the British Jazz legend Tubby Hayes. A chance sequence of events lead to Tenderlonious getting his hands on Tubby Hayes’ piccolo, resulting in this outstanding re-interpretation of four classic Tubby Hayes tracks. Featuring some of London’s finest jazz musicians today, with the hope: to introduce a whole new generation of jazz fans to a true genius of British Jazz.
