Vinyl Sessions

Ruben Fox – Anansi’s Waltz: Soho Radio Vinyl Session

Author: Soho Radio

Ruben Fox joined us for a Soho Radio Vinyl Sessions performing Django’s Lullaby and Anansi’s Waltz live as we cut the session direct to vinyl, creating a one-of-a-kind acetate.

“Ruben Fox is fast becoming one of the UK’s most outstanding Saxophonists. Steeped in the lineage of Swing and the Blues, Ruben’s husky tone & exciting double time figures define his sound. Hailing from Brixton, South London, he started playing for his Fathers carnival troupe aged 10. Through Kinetika Bloco he was introduced to the music of Sun Ra, Alice Coltrane, Fela Kuti and many more, with peers from Kinetika he then joined the Tomorrow’s Warriors program where he started to practice and concentrate on Jazz. At 16, he began to cut his teeth at the Ronnie Scott’s Late night sessions.”
