Jazz Messenger Jean Toussaint returns to Hull in 2018 with his most ambitious and exciting work to date.

Building on the success of his 2015 Roots and Herbs project, Toussaint and his all-star band have recorded a daring suite of original compositions and arrangements, building on the legacy of the late, great Art Blakey.
