Musically Exquisite, Lyrically Explicit – Artistically Evocative, Socially Provocative – the Beatnik Preachers meld a blistering style of jazz with original beat-poetry to form a unique ensemble that provides a palette for both the ears and the mind.

Anthony “ToK” Norris (trumpet and spoken word) joined by Anton Delecca (sax) gather the funky drumming of Miles Henry and the groove of bassist Nick Haywood to drive a quintet allowing the sublime piano of Joel Lewis to evoke and provoke both melody and harmony. Norris and Delecca are melodically divine yet technically elaborate, thereby adding a unique interplay of risk and trust within the ensemble that is joyous and raucous. Firmly in the spirit of jazz whilst celebrating the human condition and investigating issues that currently face each and every one of us. The second album sees the addition of KatrinaB to complement the quintet, thereby allowing a richer palette of textures and an incredible voice.
