From 2016. Jazz guitar hero John Etheridge joined bass guitarist Shez Raja and his band and Soweto Kinch at the Pizza Express Jazz Club in an impressive display of Indo-jazz fusion firepower in the wake of the release of Raja’s fifth album, the excellent Gurutopia. Raja, from the Wirral, long since London-based where he has a strong reputation among his fellow musicians on the gigging and session scene, recently performed at the Jazz Ahead expo in Germany. He has written all the compositions on the album, which features guest appearances by Randy Brecker and Mike Stern, and live with his band his music simply soars.
