RP BOO / SEYMOUR WRIGHT / PAUL ABBOTT (TRIO)

Very happy to welcome the first ever trio performance by RP Boo – an originator and continual innovator of Chicago footwork music – and two very radical musicians based in London; Seymour Wright and Paul Abbott.

RP Boo, Seymour and Paul share a fascination with the musical history of Chicago – a source of which is of continual nourishment to their ongoing practice. While RP Boo’s footwork takes from the rhythmic structures of Chicago house and the samples, grooves and melodies of 60’s/70’s Chicago soul, disco and R&B, Seymour and Paul share a fascination with these musics, and bring to this lineage a long term engagement with Chicago’s jazz traditions, from Baby Dodds to the AACM.
