The seventh solo record from Mercury-nominated singer Carleen Anderson is her ‘best and bravest yet, a deeply poetic take on belonging and exile that pulses with ideas and life’ (The Evening Standard).

Cage Street Memorial chronicles a century of family heritage, performed live by Anderson with Orphy Robinson on vibraphone, percussion from Crispin Robinson, Samy Bishai on violin and Renell Shaw on bass.

Acknowledged by BBC 6Music's Gilles Peterson as one of the most powerful singer/songwriters of her generation, Carleen Anderson has collaborated with musicians including Paul Weller and Ramsey Lewis and was vocalist and composer for the Young Disciples whose album Road to Freedom brought the group international recognition.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
