Noting Voices: Contemplating London's Culture
Noting Voices is Haseeb Iqbals take on the London jazz scene and explosion of live music that has consumed the city in recent years. Having grown up within it all, Haseeb focuses on the informal spaces that aided this rich and layered scene, basing his reflections on five conversations from his Mare Street Records podcast. Here he maps the scenes growth through the perspective of those who provided the physical setting: the grassroots and DIY communities essential to any underground movement. Haseeb navigates the unconventional template many of these spaces have observed, dissecting how this now internationally acclaimed scene found its voice and identity.
