Let's Bash ... CD Jazz Village (France), 2017. New Copy ...
Sweet reeds and plenty of Fender Rhodes – a set that has Jowee Omicil blowing soprano sax, alto, flute, and clarinet – over a set of tunes that move along with a gentle sort of groove! The album's got a nice polish, but is also hipper than smooth jazz too – with some rootsier currents from time to time, and just the right sort of use of electric elements, so that they never overwhelm the acoustic sound of the leader. Songs are dedicated to Ornette Coleman, Tinariwen, Roy Hargrove, and others – and titles include "Sur Le Pont D'Avignon", "A Si Pare", "Love & Honesty", "Something Clear", "Twa Groove", and "Pipillita".

Even after all these years, the BBC is still a magical place of experimentation and new discovery – as you'll hear in this special release of recordings from the Late Junction programme on Radio 3! The show strives to bring together artists with different backgrounds – and gives them the space and resources to create new music together – sounds that span scenes and styles, while crossing music and national borders – in collaborations that are as breathtaking as they are beautiful! The album opens up with plenty of surprises – and titles include "People Folk" by Tinariwen and Tunng, "Citius Altius" by Simon Fisher Turner and Martin Baker, "Where The Heart Is" by Kate Tempest and Elysian String Quartet, "Piece No 5" by John Paul Jones and Erland Dahlen, "Drilling An Ocean For You" by AGF and Gudrun Gut, "Greenwich Pier" by Ana Silvera and Maya Youssef, and "Talibe" by Diabel Cisscokho, Dadialy Koyate, and Finn Peters.
