It's an afrobeat-tinged jazz stepper...

London group Ruby Rushton are at the centre of the progressive energy rippling through the capital's jazz scene, fusing together club tropes with post-bop styles.

The Tenderlonious-led band hit the heights on their extraordinary 2015 debut album 'Two For Joy', playing some stunning shows across Europe and beyond.

A fresh seven inch single has been confirmed, with 'Sun Khosi' / 'Chrysalis' landing courtesy of the sterling 22a imprint.

We're able to share 'Sun Khosi' and it's an absolute inspiration, an afrobeat tinged jazz stepper that exudes life, optimism, and purpose.

The quartet blend seamlessly, the endlessly rhythmic shuffles fluttering alongside trumpet and flute solos.

A neat, concise piece of forward-thinking jazz music, Ruby Rushton somehow manage to sound both innately classic and future-minded at the same time.

It's great to have them back - tune in now.
