A mighty feather in the cap of
UK saxophonist Nat Birchall – and a set that really shows just how much he's opening up his sound
in recent years! The set is a second meeting between Birchall and Al Breadwinner – and like the previous, both artists handle a wide range of
instrumentation in a mode that matches 70s dub production styles with jazzy elements too – as Nat plays tenor, soprano, melodica, organ, piano, and percussion – and Al handles drums, organ, guitar, piano, and more percussion too! Breadwinner recorded and mixed the set – with the kind of
mysterious vibe that almost recalls Lee Scratch Perry at Black Ark – and the duo are joined by Vin Gordon on trombone, David Fullwood on trumpet, and Stally on baritone sax. Titles include "Wise Man Style/
The Prophet", "Tribute To The Great Tommy McCook", "Man From Jones Down", "Upright Living", "Mystical Dawn", "African Village Dub", and "Upfull Dubbing".
