altGil Scott Heron's 'The Bottle' has to be one of soul's most covered tunes. I guess we all have our favourite versions. Many still love Brother 2 Brother's take; then what about Joe Bataan's Spanish Harlem style rendition? Don't forget Maysa's wonderful reading too.

Now we can add another version to the list – from CHRIS KINGDON – who'll you'll remember from his work as half of Mather and Kingdon and via his own tunes - notably 'Cuba' and 'Free Your Mind'.

Kingdon's new reading has just been released on DSG Records and it's a late-flowering summery version of the familiar tune.... Herbie Mann style flutes, jazzy keys and chiming vibes are all part of the intriguing mix.
