Richard Spaven


Doors 7.30pm - 11.00pm


Spaven's sublime intuitive drumming and his personable nature quickly established him as a
favourite amongst the Jazzre:freshed faithful. In many ways, Spaven sums up what
jazzre:freshed is all about. By connecting the dots as he seamlessly traverses between genres,
he weaves a thread of jazz throughout each one. He is as comfortable manning the kit behind
classically trained piano virtuoso Robert Mitchell, as he was when touring the world with hall of
fame hip-hop emcee (the late) GURU.
Spaven is equally at home when providing the percussive undertone to the futuristic sounds of
maestro Mark de Clive Lowe and the prolific 4Hero. It is no surprise then that he is the
backbone for jazz vocalist Jose James’ band as well as conducting the beats for The Cinematic
The essence of jazz is clearly heard throughout Spaven’s 5ive and by challenging traditional
forms and using the many influences gathered on his musical journey so far, it’s an intriguing
idea of what a jazz album can be. Welcome to Spaven’s 5ive – Jazzre:freshed, November 2010
