Rhythm Magazine

Added on Saturday 19 April 2003
Sola, Derrick, Nick and Rob are in the new (May) issue of Rhythm Magazine (UK). Sola is featured in the "Top Tips" section. Sola and the others feature in a double-page spread about the recent Best Of British Drum Clinic, where they all played. There's a photo of Derrick and Sola playing individually, and one of them all playing as a group. The magazine writes... "After the interval, the audience were treated to some of Britain's finest-quality funk as the Jamiroquai band (minus Jay Kay himself) took to the stage and played through some of their best-known numbers including 'Space Cowboy' and 'Love Foolosophy'. Drummer Derrick McKenzie and percussionist Sola Akingbola really laid down the groove, and proved you don't have to hit hard to be funky. With Rob Harris on guitar and Nick Fyffe on bass, the band stormed through their set with foot-tapping aplomb. Very Tasty." Then later it says: "Mark [Mondesir] then invited Rob and Nick back on-stage and the trio blasted through The Meters' 'Cissy Strut' and Hendrix's 'Purple Haze', the latter in a funky format unlike anything the great guitarist would have done."
