The Jazz Warriors International present “Duke Joint” at the 2013 London Jazz festival Essentially Ellington series. Djing and Live mixing of Duke Ellington with Dub,Interviews and all manner of influences. Respected music critic Peter Quinn from The Arts Desk said ““To close the night, International Jazz Warriors Orphy Robinson and Cleveland Watkiss brought us a dynamic ‘Ellington meets dub’ DJ set in which “Mack the Knife”, “Jump for Joy”, “Money Jungle” and more were taken to entirely new sonic places. If memory serves, it’s the first time I’ve seen dancing in the QEH foyer – it was a heartwarming sight. More than anything else, Essentially Ellington made you want to go straight back to the original recordings. Now, where’s that copy of Black, Brown and Beige?”.
