22a present this two-track 7" single from the Tenderlonious-led jazz quartet Ruby Rushton. Strictly limited to 500 copies worldwide.

Ruby Rushton kicked down the door for the UK jazz renaissance back in 2015, and continue to lead the way in 2019 with this new genre-defying recording. The music is rooted in the spiritual concepts of jazz heroes such as John Coltrane and Yusef Lateef, whilst adopting influences from hip hop, Afrobeat and the UK underground culture.

"Eleven Grapes" is a song that was first conceived back in 2013. Its catchy time signature and playful melody fit together perfectly. The intricate interplay between Tenderlonious's flute and Aidan Shepherd's keys transport you back to the heyday of Bennie Maupin and Herbie Hancock.

"One Mo' Dram" is a tune reworked from an early Tenderlonious studio production. The groove is deeply rooted in traditional West African rhythm. Tim Carnegie's tough drum break builds and wraps itself around a slick trumpet solo from Nick Walters, before rolling back into the intricate melody that binds the track together.
