  • New British jazz

    It seems that UK is at the forefront of a very interesting jazz movement at the moment. I was thinking that perhaps there shuld be a separate thread here to receive updates on upcoming releases and any interesting projects. Also, any comments, opionions, reviews etc. I would like to start off by admitting that I can't wait to get my hands on the new Ill Considered album

      I don't know nothing about no movement though

        Well, as I don't live in the UK my perspective may be wrong but I get the impression that there is a wave of young British jazz musicians that get to be heard and hopefully will leave their mark, eg Ill Considered, Yazz Ahmed ‎("La Saboteuse" is easily in my 2017 top ten), Ruby Rushton, Ezra Collective, Kokoroko (more Afrobeat than jazz), Binker and Moses, not to mention the older fellows (eg. Sons of Kemet/Shabaka Hutchings and Matthew Halsall). I love the way they connect with each other as well, working in side projects and so on.

        Personally, it's the first time in years that I buy new music in such quantities and love it so much.

          It's definitely happening (man). There's all that 'We Out Here' biz as well plus Collocutor und you could maybe even include Emanative. It's well worth checking out Zara McFarlane's All Africa 10", featuring dat BInker and Moses if you haven't already.

            Jazzman has just started a new sub-label called... JAZZ45 focusing on contemporary jazz talent and the first release is by Emanative released later this month, followed by a full-length album "Earth" in June.

            Second JAZZ45 is by Nat Birchall Quartet and is being launched on June 23rd with a live show at the Glasgow Jazz Festival. His recent "Cosmic Language" album is fantastic spiritual jazz, featuring raga drones on harmonium.

            I'm sure Alan McKinnon will be along with far deeper knowledge shortly...

              There was a decent primer for new UK jazz last month (article below) which led me to Moses Boyd's Exodus and Shabaka Hutchings and the Ancestors. Worth a read and a wade through the comments below the line (tho' ignore the snarky ones)..

              The UK is home to a diverse, collaborative and newly confident jazz scene. We meet seven musicians reinvigorating the genre

                Great idea to separate British Jazz new and old from other genres in a thread like this bit like the folk thread I revived. Yep as Mr Divine said Alan is super clued in on what's happening hopefully he'll provide some info. I almost bought the new Nat Birchall but ended up buying a Joshua Abrams LP which is American so probably not relevant.

                    The choice of instrumentation intrigues me this time around, very eastern acoustic vibe. Who doesn't love the sound of a Harmonium or is it just me?

                          Echoing Boney's sentiments, some truly amazing music to check out, im proper digging Ill Considered so far.

                            I reckon we could add Vibration Black Finger to this list. The 'Blackism' LP has a touch of that Miles Davis 'Live Evil' business about it I reckon.
