“Incredible… make sure you catch him live” -Gilles Peterson
“Immense vision… a fascinating artist.” -Earmilk
“It’s an exciting time for Dizraeli… tune in now” -Clash

4 years after the Worldwide Award nominated record The Unmaster, Dizraeli announces the release of his new album JOY MACHINE with a 15-date UK tour.
Recorded almost entirely in a single day at the legendary Total Refreshment Centre in London, JOY MACHINE brings together some of the most exciting musicians in London’s new jazz explosion. With vocals from Dizraeli (Worldwide Music Awards Best Album nominee), drums from Ben Brown (Alfa Mist, Mulatu Astatke), bass from UK jazz scene
favourite Daisy George, synths from Joseph Costi (Yusef Cat Stevens, Bahla) and
saxophone from free jazzer Ronan Perrett.
Ranging from the uplifting summer anthem Greek Summer to the fierce political commentary of Bored of What, JOY MACHINE is a record for our times, bursting with urgency, intensity and life, and one that cements Dizraeli’s position as a boundary-destroying wordsmith and musician.
Having spent 2023 deep in creative mode, Diz is on tour with the band around the UK across April and May 2024. Expect explosive energy, moments of tenderness and virtuoso musicianship.

Resolution 88
Jul 1 @ 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm

Resolution 88 return to the Portland Arms to perform their 4th studio
album, ‘Vortex’. The new record is heavily inspired by the Mizell
Brother’s productions of the 70’s as well as Herbie Hancock’s
Headhunters. They will perform the new record and favourites from their
back catalogue. Copies of the new record will be available directly from
the band at this gig so don’t miss it!

Resolution 88 fuse the sound of the modern London jazz
scene with the inspirational greats of the 70’s such as Herbie
Hancock’s Head Hunters and the classic Mizell Brothers
productions. They have brought their high
energy performances to prestigious venues and festivals
around the UK and Europe.
‘Vortex’ is the 4th studio album released by Resolution 88
and with live shows supporting Snarky Puppy, Roy Ayers,
Marcus Miller, Stanley Clarke, Larry Mizell & the Blackbyrds,
Butcher Brown, the Yellowjackets and many more, Resolution
88 have established themselves as one of the UK’s leading
exponents of funk jazz. Their music is synonymous with the
beautiful sound of the Fender Rhodes.

Green Mind presents BILLY MAHONIE

Lauded by many as one of Britain’s Finest Live bands in the late 90s and early 00s, Billy Mahonie are back on tour. Taking in many of the towns and cities previously played (Glasgow, Leicester, Cambridge, London, Brighton) and some newer places, the band members have never felt so stoked to get out on the road.
