Galliano: Jazz Poets

Dele Fadele, Face, The, January 1991

DJ GILLES Peterson's Talking Loud afternoon club (Sundays at Dingwalls, London) has a reputation for showcasing distinctive acts on the jazz tip, but recently moved into new territory with The Galliano Project. What was so interesting about this particular afternoon was that the group only had tentative links with the jazz-dance scene and yet seemed to have created a scene of its very own.
