Count Kujo

Count Kujo are 6 piece (sometimes 8) Brighton based Jazz-fusion band. With such a particular focus on Jazz comes questions over validity. Jazz is a form of music that was, is and always will be incredibly contentious in how the members of its diverse community define ‘valid’ technique and approach. Count Kujo firmly believe that Jazz, like the creator - is formless. All interpretations are valid, but the key to success and fulfilment is respect. Rather than seek orthodoxy, they seek to pay respect to the art form and narratives by drawing from afar for inspiration. They continue to grow by developing more broad and diverse compositions reflecting the profound belief that the shape of Jazz to come will be grounded in our ancestral past.
