Brother’s Testament are a groove-based jazz fusion band from London. Consisting of Munashe-Caleb Manyumbu, Mark Mollison, Hugo Piper and Jack Robson, their sound amalgamates powerful grooves and stirring melodies whilst also rooted in the jazz tradition. Brother’s Testament perform from the heart and emphasise and embrace improvisation so that the set manifests organically on stage, differently each time.
Brother’s Testament have already captivated audiences at Ronnie Scott’s (supporting for Christian Scott), Jazz Cafe (supporting Antonio Sanchez), EFG London Jazz Festival under the #jazznewbloodALIVE2018 series, Vortex Jazz Club (headline show), Wilderness Festival 2018 (in association with Jazz:refreshed) and Jazz FM’s Jazz in the Round (supporting Jean Toussaint).
Last year saw the release of ‘Ascent’, their debut EP that slowly gained traction and garnered acclaim from the wider jazz community in London. Tracks from the ‘Ascent’ have been played on radio nationally, via Jazz FM (Tim Garcia, Chris Philips & Tony Minvielle) and notable UK internet radio stations Worldwide FM, NTS Radio, Reprezent Radio and Balamii Radio.
