Inspired by the tenor sax sounds of Dexter Gordon and the organ pioneer Jimmy Smith, the bands' original tunes are deeply entrenched in the roots of music. Fraser & the Alibis channel the intensity and feel-good effect of the swing and jive music of the dance hall era, combined with the intricacies of later jazz movements. Featuring some of the most in-demand, young improvisers on the London scene, the band have played over 400 gigs together and released their much-anticipated debut album in October 2017.
