    I'm preferring the vocal stuff after checking out YouTube. All fantastic and topped it off with the superb Jacob Collier.

    Yup, I think I largely agree.

    I've just had a few listens to Jah Wobble's Everything is No-thing.

    Amazing stuff. Not strictly jazz, perhaps more world music mixed with dub and some bebop thrown in, but very enjoyable nonetheless.

    The Yussef Kamal album is ace - one the best records of last year. There's another in the works apparently so looking forward to that.

    They were scheduled to play at SXSW a couple of weeks ago but had their US visas revoked at the last minute without explanation (along with United Vibrations).

    The band stated they believed the decision "to be discrimination based on religion and race." http://www.jazzfm.com/news/music-news/yussef-kamaal-barred-from-entering-america/

    I notice Brad Mehldau get a mention, 'Mehliana- Taming of the Dragon' - his 70's-tastic analogue synth blow-out with Mark Guiliana (Drums on Bowie's Blackstar) from a couple of years ago - still gets a lot of play chez Foxwell.

    Be aware that the live versions on You Tube of this material totally blow the roof off the sucker and that the album versions are a little more restrained.

    Good point. Is it jazz? Dunno but I've been listening to IV loads.

    He also plays on a record by The Dave McDonnell Group , Eidetic, which might appeal to fans of Out to Lunch.

    Abrams record from a couple years back, Magnetoception, is a wonderful thing, as much raga as jazz with Hamid Drake playing the fabulous percussion. I need to see Drake play live at some point soon.

    Agreed - Hamid Drake is great. Try and see him playing with William Parker for bonus point. Killer rhythm section.

    I just discovered Maciek Pysz, a Polish-born guitarist. Beautifully melodic but sophisticated compositions, played by world class musicians:

    Looks like he regularly plays London in a trio with Yuri Goloubev on bass and Asaf Sirkis on drums - catch them live if you can.

    We had Maciek plus his group playing at my local Jazz club a couple of weeks ago, playing to a small group of 30-40 very enthusiastic people, brilliant evening and only cost £7. Last week we had Jason Rebello, Keyboard player with Jeff Beck and Sting, doing a solo jazz piano evening, another brilliant evening.

    Sometimes there's no harm in nepotism - so here's a shameless plug for my younger brother's blog - unlike me he knows the UK jazz scene.

    Although based in Bristol, he does venture elsewhere, and obviously many of the musicians he writes about are on UK or European tours.
