A gathering of musicians drawn together to play music from and inspired by Jamaican jazz pianist Wynton Kelly.
A legendary sideman (Miles Davis, John Coltrane) and a great leader in his own right, Wynton Kelly made an enormous mark on the world of jazz. One Many People bring this same same joy and feeling to the music.
The arrangements and compositions of this upbeat group are complemented by a selection of classic and original reggae tunes infused with a jazz flavour and the spirit of improvisation.
