Simon Jefferis – Vibrations | Album of the day 30th of June 2020

Brilliant debut album from London producer and multi-instrumentalist Simon Jefferis, this 11 track set takes in a broad landscape of sounds and styles with some humorous skits thrown in that illustrate the depth of creativity here. There’s a hip hop feel to the tempo and vibe of some of the cuts here but underpinning it all is a rich well of soul and jazz that brings this album into the cannon of new jazz being created in the capital. The gorgeous, laid back ‘White Rabbit’ is soulful gem featuring Rosie Lowe, Ezra Collective’s Dylan Jones lends his tones to the...

Ann Sexton – Loving You, Loving Me | Album of the day 29th of June 2020

Ann Sexton was a niece of Chuck Jackson and released this hard to find album in 1973. The northern soul classic 'You've Been Gone Too Long' features as well as the punchy funk classic 'You're Losing Me'. The pacey 'I Still Love You' is a superb uptempo cut with searing horns and a perfect tempo for progressive, funky-end soul dancefloors while slower numbers like the sumptuous southern ballad 'Come Back Home' and the stunning 'Loving You, Loving Me' (also covered by Sandra Wright) are also standouts. In truth the whole album is a winner...a well balanced mix of slower, deep...

New releases and pre-orders 26th of June 2020

South London's Simon Jefferis' album Vibrations is a rich tapesty of jazz influenced styles that typifies the restless melting pot that much of the jazz from the capital currently comprises - skittering beats, broken, chopped and reformed pieces, lazy tempos, laid back grooves and pacier numbers put him alongside the likes of Joe Armon-Jones, Project X, Tom Misch and co. Derrick Hodge's third album 'Color of Noize' reflects a melting pot of influence and experience with jazz flow, hip-hop groove, soulful depth, spiritual uplift, and creative fire — but the concept is best described in more abstract terms while Maceo...
