Riding on support from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Bradley Zero, Worldwide FM, BBC 6Music, and NTS, Running Circle are changing the rhythm of jazz, spreading a message of peace and togetherness, from the midlands to the far reaches of consciousness. Running Circle came into being last year with Yazmin Lacey’s debut EPBlack Moon, and more recently with productions for Brownswood and First Word Records. Between touring Europe’s jazz network and making vibrations with the London vogue, Nottingham’s future-minded collective are currently psyching up for a chain of releases from their diverse roster, including south London producer Broadstrokes and free-jazz inspired electronic outfit Three Body Trio. This September marks the release ofPour Un Homme Seul, the first offering from Pete Beardsworth, who produced two soul-soaked EPs from Yazmin Lacey and performs as part of Three Body Trio and the Invisible Orchestra. Nottingham, known for its hip hop, “Rudeboy Techno” and Bob Dylan spinoffs, is the unlikely home of a jazz resurgence. For Running Circle, jazz has provided an alternative to these tropes: “There’s an undercurrent of everybody speaking the truth now, and that’s what jazz means”, (Yazmin Lacey, interviewed for the Guardian’s “British Jazz Invasion”).
