Morning! Anyone for some Future Jazz from 1989?
On the specialist jazz label Antilles New Direction this rare gem kicks a long nicely. The 12″ using that Soul II Soul beat. If I’m not mistaken I think the bass is provided by an electric tuba. Made up of trombonist Ashley Slater, Dean Whitbread (who probably had a hand in their cyberpunk image) and keyboardist Jakob Magnusson. The same sort of flavour as Freak Power (but predates it) they emerged from the festival scene and just did the one album. Quite a groundbreaking sound for the time. B-side “Bastard” is slightly quirky as well!
