This is a short film, or mini documentary, or whatever you want to call it about a good friend, and well respected artist, who is well known throughout the London Jazz scene. The video looks at Alban’s “Art Jazzed Up” project which is a collaboration between Alban and several well respected jazz musicians, forming a band, which in itself was a collaboration, between American saxophonist Mike DiRubbo and several well respected London jazz musos.
The footage from the Shaw Gallery was taken on the 11th of November 2013 and we shot the interview with Alban a few months later. Amazingly he manages to wear the same jumper in this footage, as he does in the footage shot nearly a year later at the Hideaway club!
