Drummers claiming the spotlight is not a common thing. Then again, not many drummers possess the precision, groove, and musical accuracy of Yussef Dayes. Indeed, the West London drummer, composer, and producer illustrates how technical prowess can co-exist with excellent taste and deep emotional intensity. And his contributions for blowing the door wide open for fellow UK jazz artist’s is not easily exaggerated. Yussef Dayes meteoric rise started with the album ‘Black Focus’ that he recorded with keyboardist Kamaal Williams in 2016 and ever since, his presence has been expanding. Last year, he shared his critically acclaimed and spectacularly ambitious debut album ‘Black Classical Music’. A deeply spiritual and complex journey through a vast array of influences. Don’t miss when one of the world’s most electrifying live perfomers hits the stage with The Yussef Dayes Experience at Way Out West!
