Thelonius is a five piece urban jazz band based in Bristol UK performing a mix of originals, classics from the golden age of hip-hop and some nasty jazz tunes.Imagine if Mr Monk and A Tribe Called Quest - with J Dilla in tow - all ended up in a small smokey jazz club in Prague. SECOND ALBUM – “Crows on the Beeline” is the title of Thelonius’ new album which has been released worldwide and is available from iTunes. “On behalf of Music Resource Group and our distinguished judging panelists, it is our pleasure to congratulate Thelonius on winning top honors in the Jazz EP category for Reminisce in The 12th annual Independent Music Awards.” REMINISCE, the debut EP from urban-jazz band Thelonius, as featured on the BBC6 Gilles Peterson show and Tom Robinson’s Fresh On The Net, is now available from a variety of sources including iTunes and Amazon. Bristol-based Thelonius cement the relationship between jazz and hip-hop through their interpretations of classics from A Tribe Called Quest, J Dilla, The Roots, Common, De La Soul, Gang Starr, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, E.S.T and Robert Glasper as well as a host of originals that bear that unmistakable mix of strong and interesting beats and instrumental dexterity from the soloists.
