    Have you checked out the more house-oriented stuff Kamaal Williams has done under the name Henry Wu?

    Thanks for this tip-off I now own the vinyl and liking it a lot! (Decent quality MP3 download too for the phone - would have preferred FLAC but hey you can't have it all every time)

    I hope you don't mind but a little off topic, but where are you downloading your high res new jazz music from?

    Qobuz and Bandcamp offer a wide range of interesting music in Flac or Aiff at redbook or higher rates. Cafe Oto have some great downloads too, but probably more out there than much of this thread.

    I got the Sly and Robbie with NPM in Flac from Qobuz, I think.

    I usually adopt an 'approach with caution' attitude when it comes to jazz but after spending an entertaining evening last week with a fellow fish who's quite enthusiastic about jazz and who played for me a selection of jazz smoothies, I suddenly found myself buying a wad of jazz records. Admittedly, that wad of records is actually only three, but considering I normally only buy one jazz LP once every two or three years, to buy three in one go is like a proper episode of impulsive binge shopping that'll take me years and years from which to recover!

    Anyway, the three records I bought are:

    Mathew Halsall - Fletcher Moss Park
    Mathew Halsall - On The Go
    Brad Mehldau Trio - Blues and Ballads

    I've still to receive On the Go and although I really like Fletcher Moss Park, Blues and Ballads blew me away completely - especially side 2 - as it's just the most amazing music ever! Unfortunately, the pressing has a few faults so I'm going to get it replaced, but the music is a keeper for sure. The other bad news is that I'm going back round on Friday so my wallet might be taking another hit at the weekend lol

    Oh, I meant to ask, what genre of jazz do these records come under? Whatever it is, I think it just might be my jazz-music comfy zone, my jazzy sweet spot :)

    Thank you. ^Y:)d

    Had a rough patch earlier in the year, but this is going to be on early, soon as the re-jigged and upgraded system is up and running.

    Just noticed that Shabaka Hutchings plays on the new record by Austrian group Shake Stew.

    I'll be investigating further...

    This arrived today from Touch Music.


    The mixtape links gives some samples from the record. Soprano saxophone with lots of glitches, noise, plus samples of opera and birdsong. Not sure it's jazz as such - a few steps along the electronica route from, say Nils Peter Molvaer - but I'm really enjoying it.

    Cheap on amazon today ( £4.00 than I paid for it from Touch)

    I am really enjoying the works of Collocutor, featuring Tamar Osborn on sax. 3 albums on Bandcamp, just had to buy them all. Some great african influenced tracks and some interesting takes on non-original material. No links, too lazy. Look em up
