I know it’s been out for a couple of months now but having heard it a lot more on the radio recently, god damn is the new Ezra Collective single good.
Shabaka Hutchings was on the same flight as me coming back from holiday
Been patiently waiting for a follow-up for what seems like ages now!
Mmm mmmm mmm. Revisiting Hugh Masekela’s baby making soul jazz masterpiece “Home Is Where the Music Is”. Just glorious.
happened across this and it kind of transported me for a bit
and now I’m on this for further study
This is ridiculously good.
McCoy Tyner - The Real McCoy
This borders so many genres including jazz but it’s one of the best tracks I’ve heard all year so who cares.
Feast on this belter.
Been listening to this every morning, great start to the day
This Moses Boyd album is pretty great eh
The way this song takes things up a gear five or six minutes in is phenomenal.
Cannot wait to hear Azure off the new record as well - the song is so beautiful it makes life feel alright.
Has anyone dove into the Mingus Box Set live from '73 yet? 13 songs, 4.5 hours. Face melting!
Ooh might have a 4.5 hour long gap in my schedule tomorrow
