Melodies Record Club 001: Four Tet Selects
  1. Jackie McLean & Michael Carvin - "De I Comahlee Ah" (extended) (12:22)
  2. Chris McGregor's Brotherhood Of Breath - "MRA" (6:48)
Review: The cult Melodies International label run by Floating Points and Mafalda starts a new series here. Melodies Record Club will find each curated by a different guest DJ or producer with the first one selected by the always on point Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet. He picks some of the tracks he used to spin at the legendary Plastic People and first up is an extended version of 1975 tune 'De I Comahlee Ah' by jazz stars Jackie McLean and Michael Carvin. Chris McGregor's Brotherhood Of Breath takes care of the flip with the big band energy and excellent horn work of 'MRA.'

Review: Music Message & The Moment has been put together to celebrate 60 years of Impulse Records. All the big hitters like John Coltrane, Quincy Jones, Charles Mingus, Oliver Nelson, Pharaoh Sanders, Archie Shepp and a host of other legendary jazz cats all feature. Each of them contributed to Impulse's reputation as the leading, political stand-taking label of the 60s. Togeterh they add up to a strong statement of black power, and musically the compilation take sin a wide embrace of styles and sounds. The stunning four LP box set is housed in a high-quality archival portfolio cast with a museum drop front, and it also comes with a booklet and unique slipmat, so is a real piece of collector's gold.

Review: Adrian Younge's new album is undoubtedly his most powerful yet. He says it "dissects the chemistry behind blind racism, using music as the medium to restore dignity and self-worth to my people." It is an unapologetic critique of the current systems that suppress people of colour and the malevolent psychology that taps into that. Musically, this is a deeply soulful record with elaborate orchestration and some top level guests. Next to the album, Younge has also made a short film (TAN) and 4-part podcast (invisible Blackness) on the same subject that make for vital listening.

Review: Swedish outfit Sven Wunder have a third new album on the way. If you've never heard them before get ready for a super clean and refreshing take on jazz that is luxuriant, expansive and emotive in equal measure. Here Mr Bongo serve up a taster single for the record in the form of 'Impasto.' It's got a hint of Brazilian artists like Arthur Verocai with its lavish sweeping strings and melodies. 'Prussian Blue' stars calms but builds with an uptempo beat and percussive workout that has eastern melodies and Italo library music references.

Review: Way back in 2012, legendary pedal steel player Susan Alcorn held a residency at Issue Project Room in Brooklyn. During that time, she performed a number of pieces that had been arranged for her by cellist Janel Leppin. It's a recording of one of those performances that makes up The Heart Sutra, a fusion of neo-classical, avant-garde experimentalism and jazz that brilliantly re-imagines Alcorn's music. Surprisingly, it's not Alcorn's pedal steel that dominates - though it is audible - but rather a combination of cello, violin, clarinet and guitar. The resultant music is genuinely spellbinding, though, and packed full of atmosphere. We can only imagine what it would have been like to attend the recording, but we wish we'd been there.

Review: If this is your first encounter with the unfathomably smooth and inescapably seductive Armando Trovajoli then it's important to at least get partially acquainted pretty quickly. After all, there's a distinct possibility anyone who encountered the virtuoso would wind up falling head over heels in love, or lust, with his come-to-bed jazz. As such it's only polite to know who you're sleeping with, sonically at least.

Widely regarded as Italy's numero uno for swinging cats at the time, although not everything on this score to the 1964 Piero Vivarelli movie Il Vuoto is destined to leave you battling natural urges, 'Sequence 3' is surely all about partying for example, there's a great deal that does seem to bat eyelashes and invite you upstairs for a drink, saxophone, keys, un-rushed confidence and all.

Review: Menagerie are an Australian 9-piece band who here unveil their third full-length album, once again lead by producer, songwriter, guitarist, DJ and recording artist Lance Ferguson. This record features a number of high profile guests and is said to have been inspired by the classics sounds of John Coltrane as well as the expansive new jazz era ushered in by the likes of Kamasi Washington, Shabaka Hutchings and Nubya Garcia. It sure is an expressive record with leanings towards spiritual sounds and hypnotic leads. Uplifting harmonies and dramatic drums all make it a thrilling ride, once again from this fine Melbourne crew.

Maze Of Sounds
Cat: MOS 71. Rel: 11 May 21
  1. Sweet Path (4:04)
  2. Maze Of Sounds (alternate take) (3:46)
Review:  Earlier this year, veteran composer/producer Janko Nilovicjoined forces with Russian combo the Soul Surfers to deliver Maze of Sounds, a killer collection of fresh library funk sounds. This tidy "45" kicks off with one of the album's most potent tracks, 'Sweet Path', a wonderfully laidback and sun-kissed jazz-funk number rich in simmering strings, chunky bass, eyes-closed jazz guitar and some genuinely lovely group harmony backing vocals. Over on the flip you'll find a fine (and previously unheard) version of album title track 'Maze of Sounds'. This version frames the track as lusciously languid exotica, with slow-motion Hammond B3 lines and echoing guitars atop woodblock clicks, jazzy bass guitar and horizontal funk breaks.
