This time around I am focusing on five albums with a handful of cuts from each. The albums are:
- Earthbound – The Tales of Earthbound (2013) a Brisbane based trio featuring Joe Jeremiah – Keys, Jon “Oshy” Ooi – Drums and Jonathan “Menjeed” Mengede – Bass. A fascinating mixture of styles from their debut release.
- Laura Mvula – Sing to the Moon (2013) Out this week – an amazing talent with a unique voice.
- Afrodelic Stegosaurchestra – Afrodelic Stegosaurchestra (2007) a heady combination of Afrobeat and Jazz from Tucson.
- Trichotomy – Fact Finding Mission (2013) another Brisbane band – Sean Foran – piano, John Parker – drums, Pat Marchisella – bass. More info at their website.
- Big Band Katowice – Music for My Friends (1977) quality Big Band (natch!) Polish jazz.
