From Scratch

Black History Month 2024

From Scratch is a band that started literally from scratch following the initiative of Birmingham Jazz; to play one of our Club Nights. From Scratch is led by two musicians emerging from the Andy Hamilton’s Blue Notes: Mark Hamilton, his son on saxes and Ralf DeCambre on guitar. For this gig they will be performing a commission to recreate the seminal work of Joe Harriott’s Hum Dono -with the front line up of sax and guitar.

Line Up: Ralf DeCambre- guitar, Mark Hamilton – sax, Ray Brown – bass & Eddie Powell - drums
