Los Angeles tenor titan Kamsi Washington, double bass dude Miles Mosley & The West Coast Get Down and fast rising UK altoist Camilla George's Quartet are among the latest additions to the Love Supreme Jazz Festival's fifth and strongest line-up to date that runs from 30 June to 2 July. Set in the bucolic surroundings of the South Downs in Glynde, East Sussex the festival now also includes acid jazzers D'Influence, acclaimed soul-jazz diva Mica Paris' Sings Ella Fitzgerald set and rising star singer Poppy Ajudha (pictured top right) who also channels Ella and spaced-out Alice Coltrane-style jazz vocals. Fresh-faced newcomers appearing include folk-jazz influenced singer/instrumentalist Becca Stevens, horn-laden groovers Nubiyan Twist, edgy electronica jazz duo Blue Lab Beats and soul-jazz vocal trio LaSharVu, while large brass and latin ensembles Kansas Smitty's House Band and La Mambanegra are sure to get crowds moving.
