James Mason at Gorilla on 12.03.19
A true pioneer of jazz-funk, James Mason will be performing for the first time in 15 years at Gorilla. He started his career in the late 1970s as the keyboardist and guitarist in Roy Ayers band, but it was his first and only solo album, ‘Rhythm Of Life’, that caught the attention of many jazz-funk lovers.
The album featuring the infamous boogie of ‘Sweet Power Your Embrace’ is the holy-grail among vinyl collectors and has been known to sell for a whopping £400.
You’d be a funkin’ fool to miss seeing how this artist got his mythical status first-hand.
