Blue-in-Green:PODCAST #132: Tim "Chiminyo" Doyle

Welcome to Episode #132 of the Blue-in-Green:PODCAST which this week sees Imran connect with London-based drummer, percussionist and composer, Tim Doyle.

Doyle has seen long cemented himself amongst one of London's premier musicians amidst its pioneering jazz scene.  Boasting a résumé that has seen the musician serve as a key contributor to spiritual jazz ensemble Maisha as well as the genre-defying Cykada, Doyle has further established his sound via his own Chiminyo project which seeks to celebrate the union of jazz with more electronica and club-infused soundscapes.  With his latest release through Astigmatic Records, Uniri's 'Infinite Reflections', Doyle & company once again seek to reimagine contemporary jazz this time using hip-hop luminaries as their jumping off point.

We were so grateful for the chance to catch-up with Tim to discuss his approach to making music and establishing new collectives, what constitutes jazz in today's musical landscape, Chiminyo releases and of course the new Uniri project.  We also have an involved conversation about how listeners consume their music today and the ramifications of streaming culture on the independent artist.

We'd love to extend a gratious thank you to Tim for his time and for gifting us with a really fascinating conversation.
