BIG AND BRASSY!

altTIMO LASSY is a Finnish jazz saxophonist, composer and bandleader. He's lauded and acclaimed throughout Scandinavia but has yet to make a "big" name for himself in the rest of Europe and Stateside. Maybe his newest release will help make that breakthrough. The album is a new, live recording showing what he can achieve with a large brass ensemble.

'Big Brass with the Ricky Tick Big Band Brass Live at the Savoy Theatre, Helsinki' was recorded live over two nights last year and features the 8 piece brass section of the Ricky Tick Big Band (marshalled by leader Valtteri Poyhonen) alongside Lassy's regular four sidemen and together they make a spectacular and big sound. All the material is original and includes an epic 14 minute plus 'African Rumble' alongside a number of other extended pieces, intros and outros. Out now on Must Have Jazz.

Add plenty of jazzy guitar licks and some sweet vibes and you have a really intriguing affair. The new mix is out now via Dave's web site .

LYDELL NEEDS YOU!

altLydell Williams is an indie soul singer/songwriter who hails from Little Rock, Arkansas but currently works out of Richmond, Virginia. His last release was his ode to his new home state.... 'Virginia Is For Lovers' but for his latest offering Lydell changes direction for a Prince-inspired groove, 'I Need You'.

The song comes from Mr W's upcoming album 'Without You' and it's a meandering, sparsely arranged, slow simmering jam. Out now!

 

STORM WALKING!

Tuesday, 25 February 2020 19:42 Bill B E-mailPrintPDF

altFERGUS HAMBLETON is an acclaimed Canadian singer, songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist. It's an understatement to say that he's a veteran... he's been in the business for something like 50 years.... working in the folk, pop, reggae and blue-eyed soul fields! Maybe Mr H is best known for his work with Jamaican musician Jo Jo Bennett at the core of the Sattalites but Fergus also pursues a solo career and right now he's busy promoting his latest solo album..... 'Neighbourhoods.'

The LP's key cut has just been released as a single. Tune in question is an eerie and atmospheric 'Walking In A Storm'. With some sinister 60 style guitar, laid back vocals and a fade out horn solo, it has a catchy blue–eyed soul sort of appeal.... maybe think Mayer Hawthorne with a nod to Richard Hawley! Out now.
