At last an album which captures some of the intense excitement, wayward adventure and sheer joy of a group which has wowed audiences at festivals and clubs across Europe and North America. Uplift The People by South African drummer Louis Moholo-Moholo's prosaically-named Five Blokes was recorded live at London's Cafe Oto in April 2017 and represents ...

Matt Ridley: Mettã

Read "Mettã" reviewed by Roger Farbey

A graduate of London's Trinity College of Music, this is in-demand bassist Matt Ridley's second album as leader. On “Music To Drive Home To" Jason Yarde plays a repeated plangent melody on soprano saxophone followed by John Turville elegantly soloing on piano. As its name implies “Lachrymose" is something of a tear-jerking exercise with Yarde squeezing ...

The latter in particular was a remarkably ambitious octet session that mixed clarinet ...

Enough to make any self-respecting reviewer power down their laptop you might think, but then out of the blue come gems like this from the ...
