A new city. A new mentality. A new sound.
After venturing out from his home town to go and live and study in the UK, Kuala Lumpur-born saxophonist Imran Aiman has discovered for himself what it means to explore life beyond the traditional jazz rites of passage.
Still loyal to the Charlie Parkers and the Miles Davis’s that nurtured his introduction to the jazz world, he found himself thrown into an exciting underground jazz movement, sessioning around London’s best venues with burgeoning talents such as David Mrakpor of Blue Lab Beats, Sheldon Agwu – currently touring with Jordan Rakei, and forming a band called ATBS (AnyThing But Standards).
Being exposed to the centre of this blossoming jazz revolution led him to the sounds of Nu Jazz, fronted by international artists such as Kamasi Washington, Christian Scott Atunde-Adjuah and FKJ.
Now back in his home town where his journey began, Imran is taking his career to the next level, front lining a new project which reflects the current stage of his journey.
Welcome to The Next Chapter.
