A Tribute to The Crusaders A Tribute to The Crusaders

This sees the debut of a new project paying homage to the music of The Crusaders. They began life during the 1960s as The Jazz Crusaders, but a name change in 1971 and a shift towards a more jazz funk style gave them a crossover appeal which led to a string of commercially successful albums during the 1970s including a number of hit songs with guest vocalists. This project has brought together a group of London's finest musicians to delve into the back catalogue of foot tapping funky grooves and soulful melodies of this seminal jazz funk band. The line up features Patrick Clahar on sax, Winston Rollins on trombone, Nat Martin on guitar, Simon Carter on keyboards, Phil Mulford on bass and Andrew Small on drums.
