Snapping rhythms with plenty of jazz – a great collaboration between musicians who've worked together with Gregory Porter, Jose James, and Ty – stepping out here on a unique project of their own! The core energy of the set comes from the live drums of Richard Spaven and keyboards of Grant Windsor – who uses a fair bit of Fender Rhodes on the record, often with the best cosmic touches of the London scene, but a bit more classic focus overall – which really gives the set a sparkling, soulful energy that you'll love right from the start. Most tracks also features these wonderfully round acoustic basslines from Neville Malcolm – and although one track features some vocals from Nailah Porter, the main vibe overall is instrumental – with a quality that's quite similar to Kaidi Tatham's entry in the 5ive series. Titles include "Perseophone", "Koln", "The Sure Chimes", "Sort Of Things", and "Loose Shots".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
