Hosted by David Gleave MW

“One of the UK’s greatest experts on Italian wine”. (Jancis Robinson, FT 2017).

 David is one of only 356 Masters of Wine in the world. The MW is the highest and toughest of all wine qualifications. More humans have been into space than have passed the course. He is founder of Liberty wines, who represent many of the best of Italy’s artisan wineries.

 Jancis Robinson, a fellow MW and Britain’s most respected wine journalist reckons David to be the post popular member of the UK wine trade, and “one of the UK’s greatest experts on Italian wine”.

 From Abruzzo round to Campania, plus Sicily and Sardinia, we find millennia-old grape varieties, vineyards and traditions, long pre-dating the Roman era. Grape varieties such as Aglianico Hellenic and Nero di Troia the black grape of Troy tell of ancient traditions – grape varieties which have been grown on these arid slopes continuously since ancient times.

 These rather forgotten and far-flung regions may not have the international presence of high-priced northerners such as Piedmont, but they pack a punch and rival any of the world’s wine regions for authenticity and fascinating history. The tasting will include the wine of Farnese who have twice been voted Italy’s best winery.  Their range includes ‘Edizione’, voted Italy’s best red wine.

Part of the Cambridge Jazz Festival's

Gil Scott-Heron Tribute Weekend:

Sat Nov 18th 9-11pm  - Malik & The O.Gs

 

'THE REVOLUTION WILL BE LIVE!'

 

Sat 18th Nov. 8:30 - 11pm (with interval)

Malik & The O.G’s (Tribute to Gil Scott-Heron)

 

Malik Al Nasir - Poet & Producer

Afrika Green - Drummer

Tiago Coimbra - Bass

Ebo Shakur - Flute / Percussion

Phil Marshall - Sax

 

Fronted by Malik Al Nasir, the protege of Gil Scott-Heron, Malik & the OG’s perform an innovative set, utilising an eclectic blend of musical and vocal elements, with a politically charged poetic polemic that we haven’t seen in the UK since Billy Bragg, Linton Kwesi Johnson and John Cooper Clarke.

 

Malik’s work is reminiscent of his mentors and lifelong friends, the late great Gil Scott Heron, & Last Poet – Jalal Nuriddin – a.k.a “Lightnin’ Rod’ who schooled Malik ever since meeting them both in Liverpool back in 1980’s.

 

Malik spent years touring with Gil and also had the great privilege to write a song for him before he died. Gil recorded the song called ‘Black & Blue’ which features on Malik & the O.G’s newly released double album, entitled “Rhythms of the Diaspora Vol's 1 & 2.” 

 

Malik’s repertoire with his band “The O.G’s” features a tribute to Richie Havens, the black folk music legend, who opened Woodstock in 1969 with the song “Freedom – Motherless Child” which has been covered by Paul Robeson, Eric Clapton and more recently John Legend, but ‘Malik & the OG’s’ take on it has a twist, blending spoken word verses (à la Gil Scott Heron).

 

Malik described his work, as “A quiet revolution” saying, “Poetry and music can be a force for good and revolution is nothing but change that should bring benefits. So when you combine revolution and poetry and set it to music, you can make people think how to make a change that is beneficial.”
