Review: Jazz Room Records is the work of legendary London jazz-dance DJ Paul Murphy, so it's perhaps unsurprising that the label's first outing is an essential reissue of one of his personal favourites: Hugo Heredia's spiritually-minded 1976 Latin-Jazz fusion masterpiece, "Mananita Pampera". Although it begins with a dense and psychedelic collage of Heredia's breathy flute playing, the album's genius lies in its' combination of heavy Latin percussion, skittish jazz drums and the bright and breezy instrumentation atop (piano, double bass and Heredia on sax). Of course, there are a few slower, laidback cuts to be found dotted across the album, but for the most part it's a sweaty, excitable dancefloor excursion that's been a staple of Murphy's sets since the 1980s.

Review: Percussionist Robin Jones was one of the earliest - and eventually longest-serving - exponents of Latin jazz in the UK. While he guested on hundreds of records and was still playing a couple of years before his death at 84 last year, Jones only ever released a handful of albums under his own name. Arguably the best - and certainly most popular amongst Britain's legion of jazz-dancers - was 1972's "El Maja", credited to the Robin Jones Sextet. A scintillating fusion of Afro-Cuban and Afro-Brazillian rhythms laden with sprightly woodwind and brass sounds, jaunty piano, jazz-funk Rhodes sounds and notable nods towards rhythm and blues, the hard-to-find album has now been reissued by legendary London jazz DJ Paul Murphy's Jazz Room Records imprint. It should be an essential purchase for anyone who loves Latin jazz.

Review: While trying to keep himself busy during lockdown, musician Laurence Mason decided to record a Dave Brubeck style cover version of the Stranglers' classic "Golden Brown" full of excitable drum solos, and snaking horn lines replacing the oh-so familiar lead vocal. It became a big hit online after he posted it on YouTube, so Jazz Room Records boss Paul Murphy asked if he could release it on wax. It's a superb version that successfully reinvents the Stranglers' gem as a quality jazz tune. Equally as impressive is his flipside version of the Police's "Walking on the Moon", which is as deep, atmospheric, enticing and intoxicating as they come. In fact, it could well be better than the in-demand A-side, and that's saying something.
