Gilles Peterson // Listening session for Tam… Tam… Tam…!
July 18, 2016
As the release of Tam Tam Tam Reimagined gets ever nearer, on Tuesday 19th there’s a chance to hear the record that inspired it in all its glory. Tam… Tam… Tam…! by José Prates is an extraordinary album, only issued once in 1958 as part of Mieco Askanasy’s 1950s touring “Braziliana” show.
An extremely rare record, it was only after an appeal on Channel 4 News and a lot of hunting that GP was able to get his hands on a copy. To celebrate, we’re holding an event with Classic Album Sundays at Brilliant Corners to listen to the album through their glorious Klipschorn speakers.
There will also be a Q&A with Gilles about the album.
The event is Tuesday 19th July at Brilliant Corners, 470 Kingsland Rd, London E8 4AE.
Tickets are £15. You can click here to order.
