Listen to their new single 'Trip for Nothing' —
Etuk ubong Sextet lead by young, soft-spoken, talented and hardworking Mr. Etuk Ubong is one of the fast-rising jazz trumpeters steadily climbing to international fame from his home country, Nigeria, and the world has started taking note!
Acclaimed South Africa music industry writer, trainer and researcher, Mr. Gwen Ansell, who also writes for Businessday South Africa and BDLIVE South Africa, recently penned wrote in her review: “Ubong’s playing approach offers irresistible reminders of Miles Davis in the late 1950s quartet recordings: a velvet tone and quiet inventiveness rather than brash grandstanding, but underpinned by quick fingers and an even quicker mind… But there’s clearly more, and more that’s intriguing, to Ubong’s music… When the trumpet begins, the note sequence is distinctively Nigerian, not American, and it’s further in that African direction that Ubong’s intelligent improvisation takes it.”
