Vince Watson – Another Moment In Time [Everysoul]

It has taken nearly twenty years but finally we’ve been treated to a new full length release from DJ/Producer Vince Watson. “Another moment in time” glides with rich heavenly chords and sublime house rhythms. “Rendezous” is a ten minute cascade of ambient melodies and seductivee rhythms. The track first appeared on Carl Craig’s Planet E label in 2006. “Piece of Mind” is another floor burner aided by the sweet piano rhythms from Detroit’s own Jon dixon. With Dixon’s gentle touch and the unrelenting house rhythm, you’ll no doubt get swept away. “Lost in the Deep” is exactly what title implies. It’s seven minutes of gorgeous synths and atmospheric chords certained to transport you to another moment in time. Watson’s marvelous release takes you on a cosmic journey. The grooves are infectious and the chords will warm your soul. All along the way your feet will never stop moving.

Minus & MRDolly – Giant Stops [Jazzego]

“Giants Steps”, the new release from Hugo Oliveira aka Minus & MRDolly is an ode to the iconic Coltane classic. Oliveira doesn’t pay tribute in the form of bebop, instead he blurs the lines of jazz, hip hop and electronics. “Chronography” kicks things off with bubbling chords and a funky bass groove. “A Queda” is an ambient trance of warm chords and simmering cymbals, topped off by the soothing vocals from Luca Angel. “Entretanto” follows the same pattern, this time aided by the seductive vocals of Meta. Oliveira’s evolution as musician is on display here. The compositions are warm and robust and makes for a satisfying listen.

Menagerie – The Shores Of Infinity [Freestyle Records]

The fourth installment from Menagerie and the third lp released on Freestyle records. The group led by Lance Ferguson expands beyond the spiritual jazz recordings of the previous releases. “The Shores Of Infinity” features more groove oriented compositions yet they contain plenty of potency to keep you locked in for the ride. Evidence of that lies in the title track, a breezy funk number that’s airy, free and laced with warm electric piano chords. “Kingdom” is a fusion banger filled with bubbling percussion and vocal harmonies. Top that off with engaging soloing from trumpeter Ross Irwin. “Danieda’s Dance” is reminiscent of the deeper compostions the band has become known for. The nine minute track is punctuated by flurries of tenor riffs from Phil Noy and majestic piano flurries. This is another marvelous recording from Ferguson that you shouldn’t miss.

Scrimshire – Paroxysm [Albert’s Favourites]

“Paroxysm”, the latest from Adam Scrimshire was inspired mainly by the inhumane treatment of refugees and migrants by the government. There are a couple of tunes related to the pandemic but the mistreatment of migrants was too much to ignore. Fortunately Scrimshire’s emotive compositions provide a voice for all of us who are outraged while serving as a welcoming tonic. The haunting soundscapes of “Eyes Wide Shut” provide plenty of space for Faye Houston’s soothing vocals to glide over Scrimshire’s piano rhythms. “Your Invitation is A Lie” erupts with Idris Rahman’s powerful flurries on tenor topped off by spirited drumming. “Flames” is another highlight. Tamar Osborn’s clarinet provides warmth and the arrangement is elegant and luminous. “Paroxysm” is a splendid representation of the moods we’re experiencing right now. Whether it’s joy, pain or indifference you can be certain that Scrimshire can channel it into something beautiful. This album is evidence of that.
