Ruby RushtonIronside ... CD
22A (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Completely fantastic work from Ruby Rushton – a UK quartet that we completely love to death – and who sound better here than ever before! Although classic, the special vibe of the group is a bit hard to describe – as they've got a special sense of flow, a special balance of electric and acoustic – spiritual and soulful, but also somewhat understated too – all of which is what makes them so great, and one of the most exciting combos we've heard in recent years! There's this slow-glowing quality that's maybe inherited from Freddie Hubbard's "Little Sunflower" – energy that builds and flows from the Fender Rhodes and piano of Adian Shepherd, the trumpet of Nick Walters, and the flute and soprano sax of Edward Cawthorne – all given this nice crackle on drums from Tim Carnegie, a musician who seems to have absorbed the inventive London rhythms of the early part of this century, then found a way to take them back down to earth. The whole thing's fantastic – funky, yet not funk – filled with spirit, but not the usual spiritual jazz either – completely in its own space, on titles that include "The Target", "Where Are You Now", "Ironside", "Prayer For Grenfell", "Pingwin (Requiem For Komeda)', and "One Mo Dram". CD features two bonus alternate takes too! CD

Ruby RushtonTrudi's Songbook – Volumes 1 & 2 ... LP
22A (UK), 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99 28.99
Ruby Rushton is the name of the group, not an individual member – and it's also a name that's sure to be at the top of your list once you hear this incredible debut! The album's got this fantastic blend of funky and spiritual grooves – all played with a quality that's soulful, but effortless – almost vintage, but never trying to sound forced or copycat at all – just this easy-flowing groove that's incredible, and which kind of gives the record an instant classic sound from the very first note! Edward Cawthorne is the ersatz leader – as he wrote and arranged the whole set – but his work on flute and saxes is just one part of the album's wonderful groove, which also includes trumpet from Nick Walters, keyboards from Aidan Shepherd, bass from Fergus Ireland, drums from Eddie Hick, and percussion from Joseph Deenmamode – a lineup who seem to be tied together in soul and spirit right from the start. The London-based group are rock-solid throughout – hitting territory that's maybe more soulful than some of the spiritual currents of the Gondwana Records scene a few years before, but with an equal sort of depth. Titles include "Trudi's Mood", "Moonlight Woman", "Prayer For Yusef", "Where Are You Now", "Elephant & Castle", "The Camel's Back", "Song For Christopher", "Tisbury Truckin", "Together At Last", "Charlotte Emma Victoria", "Trudi's Mood (part 2)", and a nice remake of Herbie Hancock's "Butterfly".

TenderloniousHard Rain ... CD
22A (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A very different album than the previous Tenderlonious record – but a set that's still overflowing with the soulful sounds that made us love his music in the first place! Last time around, Tenderlonious worked with the 22A Arkestra – a group of labelmates that fleshed out his sound – but here, things are very stripped-down, electric, and keyboard-heavy – kind of a fresh take on fusion for the 21st Century, in a way that pulls the genre through years of rhythm revolutions – as most of the drums and other elements here are programmed, but still with a loose, creative vibe that matches the keyboards. Titles include "Another State Of Consciousness", "Casey Jr", "Hard Rain", "Buffalo Gurl", "Low Tide", "Love You", "Workin Me Out", and "Aesop Thought". CD
Also available Hard Rain ... LP 19.99

Tenderlonious featuring the 22 ArchestraShakedown ... CD
22A (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
We kinda want to hate the guy for such a hokey name like Tenderlonious – but this album's a surprisingly great little gem, and one that mixes lots of openly-blown work on flute with some sweet keyboards and other jazzy rhythms! The approach is maybe a bit like the Jason Lindh or Chris Hinze albums of the early 70s – and by that, we mean their better sets – with a flute approach that's less biting than the generation of Herbie Mann and Roland Kirk, using the instrument more in these spacious ways that are pretty darn great – especially against the heavy percussion and basslines of the 22Archestra! There's a few nice moments that almost have a Bobbi Humphrey sort of warmth – and titles include "Togo", "SV Interlude", "Expansions", "The Shakedown", "Yussef's Groove", "Red Sky At Night", and "You Decide".

✨✧ EABS feat TenderloniousKraksa/Svantetic EP ... LP
22A (UK), 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Polish jazz septet EABS gets a little help from Tenderlonious on a pair of great takes on early 60s Krzysztof Komeda compositions! "Kraksa" runs 13+ minutes on one side and Svantetic close to 11 minutes on the other, both bringing a riveting sense early 60s cinematic jazz atmosphere in really nicely, but in a freshly-inspired way – putting a contemporary spin on them thanks to a seamless way of blending spacey synth, Moog, echo and turntable atmosphere with classic soul jazz-schooled trumpet, sax, piano, bass, drums – plus flute and soprano thanks to guest Tenderlonious!

✨✧ Nick Walters & The Paradox EnsembleAwakening ... LP
22A (UK), 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first work we've heard as a leader from trumpeter Nick Walters – one of the up-and-coming talents on the hard-burning UK jazz scene in recent years – and a real visionary here at the head of a larger ensemble! Nick's got this unusual approach that brings together some world jazz elements in a group that's over ten members in size – played with lots of spiritual currents throughout, but also maybe a bit more focus and a slight touch of funk – at least more than other albums of this nature. The songs are all originals, and work on trumpet, tenor, alto, flute, and trombone mix effortlessly with sounds from keyboards, guitar, and other electronics. The group has two percussionists, in addition to a drummer – and also features work on harp and accordion too – a fascinating mix of sounds, on titles that include "Brahman", "Zero", "Dear Old Thing", and "34268".
