  • New releases April 2019

    Something nice from Jazzaggression that probably won't suit everyone, or maybe nobody at all. Akerblom and Zenger Live at Romu jazz 2015. Nice duets with Saxophone/flute and bass. I like a sparse set-up, with a lot of space, and air in the mix, and I'm really digging this. Only 250 of them which probably points to a bit of a niche interest but if you want one I know they have them at Juno and Mr Bongo. There's a Soundcloud link here.

    Has this new Warren Hamphire & Greg Foat LP been mentioned yet?

    Greg Foat’s 9th album 'The Mage' joins the dots between the past and future of British jazz. Enlisting the talents of jazz/library/soundtrack legends Duncan Lamont, Art Themen, Ray Russell and Clark Tracey to collaborate with their modern contemporaries Greg Foat, Moses Boyd and Heliocentric's drummer Malcolm Catto to create something undeniably British but outward looking and global.

    A long time personal ambition for Greg was to work with Trinidadian songstress Kathy Garcia, on 'The Mage', this wish is granted as she joins him to re-imagine the deep Xian masterpiece ‘Of my Hands', 45 years after recording it as a young girl.

    Greg’s compositions and arrangements showcase the old and new, downtempo folkscapes, free jazz with notes of hip-hop and soul from the young team flavouring the mix. Featuring Simon Ljungman and Friends as a male choir, Greg's EMS Synthi AKS experiments (made famous by Dr Who) the album is a testament to the versatility and pure musicality of all those involved and Greg Foat’s ability to bring artists together to record beautiful, timeless music.

      No it hasn't- It's just Greg Foat, though, isn't it?

      I'm definitely in because I've never been disappointed by Greg. It's going to have to wait as I seem to have no money until next month, by which I mean June!

        ah yes, i was looking at Discogs where someone has added it as both, but as it's not out yet they were probably just making it up
