Australian 9-piece Spiritual Jazz group Menagerie return with their highly anticipated third album ‘Many Worlds’. Lead by the superbly talented Lance Ferguson ‘Many Worlds’ features some of Australia’s finest musicians, including pianist Mark Fitzgibbon (a regular performer at Gilles Peterson and Patrick Forge’s original Dingwalls sessions), drummer Daniel Farrugia and renowned saxophonist Phil Noy (The Bamboos). Inspired by both the post-Coltrane generation of the 70’s, labels like Strata-East, Impulse! and Tribe, Menagerie also sit within the current ‘New Wave of Jazz’ and will appeal to fans of Kamasi Wrshington, Shabaka Hutchings and Nubya Garcia among others. The punchy ‘Hope’ is an incredible, driving piece of uptempo jazz, the more laid back title trick has a touch of Prestige in the lead guitar while the pacey ‘Free Thing’ is looser with a nod to The Art Ensemble of Chicago blended with the spoken word vibes of The Last Poets. ‘Mountain Song’ has an Afro-Latin feel, the crashing, spacey ‘Hymn Of The Turning Stone’ is a cascading spiritual gem while the album closes out with the thumping ‘Quantum Blues’ on yet another cut that demonstrates the sheer class of this group. Unmissable!
