Fred Wesley is responsible for or has played an important part in most of the greatest Funk/Jazz music ever made. His work with James Brown in the 1970s established him as the world’s funkiest trombonist. Funkadelic, Parliament, George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, Ray Charles, Maceo Parker, Count Basie, Aretha Franklin, Lionel Hampton, Curtis Mayfield, Barry White, Van Morrison, De La Soul, Lenny Kravitz. These are just a few more names in the Funk, Jazz & Soul world that the 76-year old trombonist has worked with, played with, or has directed and composed music for during his long and incredible career.

Fred Wesley’s discography is a mile long. As well as decades of work with those musical legends he has also produced some of the greatest Funk-Jazz music of all time with his own band 'The JBs' (which he directed with James Brown), and now with 'The New JBs'.

He performs in Cyprus as 'Generations Trio', featuring himself on Vocals & Trombone, 26-year-old Italian prodigy Leonardo Corradi on the Organ and 47-year-old French drummer Tony Match. Three musicians who initially came together to pay tribute to the soulful Jazz of legendary organist Jimmy Smith, they clicked and continue grooving together. Their show combines Wesley’s experience, Corradi’s energetic reflection of Smith and other Jazz giants, and Match’s Jazz drumming coloured by influences including electronic sounds and African beats.
