Tino Contreras
La Noche De Los Dioses

La Noche De Los Dioses is the first album since 2017 by 96 year old Mexican jazz drummer Tino Contreras. Contreras has been making music since 1940 and has shared the stage with the likes of Art Blakey, Louis Armstrong and Dave Brubeck. Despite his age, this album is one filled with contemporary jazz and fresh ¾ rhythms. 

Zara McFarlane
Songs of an Unknown Tongue

Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood imprint presents Songs of an Unknown Tongue, the fourth studio album from Zara McFarlane. A prominent member of Britain’s burgeoning jazz scene, McFarlane’s latest record explores her Jamaican heritage via a futuristic sonic range co-produced with South London artists Kwake Bass and Wu-lu. 

Forest Law
Forest Law

Having signed to Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood label a couple of months back, London-based musician Forest Law introduces his self-titled debut EP for the imprint. Just like the work that generated such attention initially, the three tracks here are sonically eclectic yet warm and human, with Brazilian influences laced throughout.

Kassa Overall
I Think I'm Good

I Think I’m Good is the second album by rising star Kassa Overall. Through a seamless fusion of jazz and hip-hop, the Brooklyn-based musician tackles America’s prisons, personal relationships and mental health. Features guest spots from Brandee Younger and Theo Croker, newbies Joel Ross and Morgan Guerin and activist Dr. Angela Davis. On Brownswood Recordings.

Joe Armon-Jones
Turn To Clear View

Joe Armon-Jones has featured in the bands Ezra Collective and Mr. Jukes. He is known for his keyboard skills and adding a distinctly jazz flavour to club sounds along with R&B, hip-hop and p-funk. His latest solo outing, 'Turn To Clear View', sees him nodding in the direction of Herbie Hancock and Mad Scientist. Regular collaborators Oscar Jerome, Moses Boyd and Nubya Garcia contribute.

Daymé Arocena
Sonocardiogram

Daymé Arocena is a singer from Cuba. Her eponymous album lays down rumba rhythms which are then sprinkled with jazz. She is backed by a crack team of fellow Cuban musicians. She is influenced by legends of Cuban music such as La Lupe and Tito Puente. Recently she has collaborated with Dexter Story and Roberto Fonseca. Apparently, her live show is quite the thing to behold, so perhaps try and catch her in town sometime.

Sunny Side Up

A new compilation arriving from Gilles Peterson’s current Brownswood Recordings label, Sunny Side Up focusses very specifically on the jazz, soul and funk underground scene in Melbourne, Australia. Engineer Nick Herrera hosted a week-long session in suburban studio The Grove to produce these nine tracks.

Skinny Pelembe
Dreaming Is Dead Now

Skinny Pelembe’s debut album, Dreaming Is Dead, mixes dub, hip-hop, sun-drenched folk and blissed-out soul. Giles Peterson has championed the Johannesburg-born, Doncaster-raised artist. James Lavelle and Ghostpoet have also been singing his praises. The album was produced by Malcolm Catto of Heliocentrics. If you like Massive Attack, this is probably for you. LP and CD on Brownswood Recording.

Zara Mcfarlane with Dennis Bovell
East Of The River Nile

Everyone loves Augustus Pablo’s vintage album East of the River NIle and it’s especially good title track, don’t they? Well Zara McFarlane certainly loves it. Here she presents four of her own jazzed-up versions of the track, with Dennis Bovell at the controls. Two ‘straight’ takes and then a dub mix of each of those. Go east! On Brownswood Recordings.

Swindle
No More Normal

Swindle comes from grime and dubstep background and builds on these foundations by incorporating UK jazz and hip-hop. No More Normal sees him working MCs such as Kojey Radical, Ghetts, D Double E and P Money, vocalists Etta Bond, Eva Lazarus, Kiko Bun and Daley and musicians Dubya Garcia, Yussef Dayes and Riot Jazz. Hiring such a cast of characters came from his need for everyone to be on his album. LP and CD on Brownswood.

Maisha
There Is A Place

Ride the London Jazz Underground, Brownswood Records line, then hop off at Maisha station. There is a place there called There is a Place. It’s this debut Maisha album and it’s a vibrant little corner indeed. Drummer-bandleader James Long and his twelve-strong accomplices weave through guitar- and sax-led spiritual jazz, Afrobeat and other stylings.

Joe Armon-Jones
Starting Today

One of the leading lights of young British jazz in 2018, Ezra Collective member Joe Armon-Jones drops his debut solo LP via Brownswood. Starting Today is as much of a melting-pot as you’d expect. Influences of jazz, hard-bop, soul, afrobeat and plenty else show here, and the performances of Moses Boyd, Nubya Garcia and others buoy this globalist, cosmopolitan record.

We Out Here

We Out Here presents a snapshot of the current state of young London jazz, and let me tell you, the scene(s) are sounding in fine health! Nine tracks, all recorded especially for this release, map the variety of sounds and cross-pollinations currently going on, such as Ezra Collective’s afrobeat stylings and Shabaka Hutchings’ free-but-rhythmic power. Great stuff on CD and 2 LPs by Brownswood Recordings.
