Kamaal Williams has almost single handedly made jazz cool again. The exceptional keys player first did so as part of the now sadly disbanded Yussef Kamaal. Their debut album Black Focus was widely heralded as a modern great, and will soon be followed up by The Return, which finds Williams link with bassist Pete Martin, drummer MckNasty and sound engineer Richard Samuels. It is said to be a natural successor that deals in the sounds of the London streets as well as plenty of visionary jazz. Williams himself also makes soul infused broken beats and house as Henry Wu on labels like MCDE and Eglo and plays mesmeric live shows, so is one of the most vital characters in the modern music landscape. Before he plays for us a Lente Kabinet he has served up a special one hour mix that offers up plenty of his inspirations and influences. From high speed jazz funk to languid, worldly jazz via transcendental guitars and summery soul, it bares all the beautiful hallmarks of Williams’s own music and makes perfect sense in warm weather.

Hi everybody! The brand new My Favorite Things is here with as usual some of my best crate and web digging. This mix starts with a very rare and deep Danish Jazz track, by "Vagn Leicks Trio", a good introduction to the full mixed version of Kalima's "Sunshine", a lovely Modern Soul nugget, recently reissued by the young French label Chuwanaga. Potatohead People, Black Milk, and Jazzy Jeff are all back with some great new LPs, and I am definitely loving their blends of Nu Soul, Funk, and Hip Hop. A big shout out to both Jessica Lauren and Toshio Matsuura, your new releases are definitely must-haves for all the New Jazz Lovers out there. The second half of the show is focused on the sounds I've loved playing for the dance floor recently. The absolutely killer "Super People" by The Sunlightsquare and the the great 'from '70s Funk to Latin Fusion' track "Happening in the Streets" by The Voltage Brothers. Discover something new, and enjoy! For TRACKLIST: https://bit.ly/2IE1CxM Subscribe on iTunes: https://apple.co/2IIjQOE

Hell Yeah’s next project is to revisit a collection of jazz covers of dance classics. Back To New Roots (Serotonin Fuelled Jazz Covers) was first released in 2011 by 3iO, a band lead by double bassist Manuel Moretti and including Richard Maggioni on piano and Matteo Giordani on drums. This album, however, which originally stated as a joke to challenge the musicians to do something different and flip dance, alternative and chill out hits from Fat Boy Slim, Groove Armada, Chemical Brothers, Royskopp, Underworld, Spiller and DJ Shadow into new forms, proves what playing skills the group had. Now presented on special 180g vinyl and with magical art from Andrea Amaducci for the first time, Back To New Roots (Serotonin Fuelled Jazz Covers) has already got support from the likes of Giles Peterson, Chris Coco and Jon Sa Trinxa. ‘Eple’ has also already proved a big download hit, so this release pays dues to some talented musicians who embraced a crazy idea. Opener ‘Eple’ is all fat bass and wandering keys and oozes an inimitable jazz-funk. ‘Les Nuits’ is a more tender, late night track of sombre chords, and ‘Soul Vibration’ becomes a romantic downtempo classic. ‘Organ Donor’ retains the darkness of the classic original but with a new found jazz energy, and ‘Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love) is a nimble, on your toes gem. ‘Right Here, Right Now’ is flipped into a slowed down and plaintive piece, ‘Born Slippy’ lifts the energy levels with splashes of cymbals and superb live drums and ‘Always’ closes on a tender note with dusty snares and tangs of bass. A new side project from Manuel Moretti may well follow on Hell yeah in the near future, but for now this collection provides plenty of magical moments for a different kind of dance floor.

Matasuna Records is delighted to reissue this Peruvian masterpiece by Otto de Rojas - one of the best Piano players from Peru. In 1976 he and his band Los Ultra 76 released this superb single mixing Latin with Funk, Jazz and Disco. Both tracks getting remastered by Carvery Cuts (UK) to provide the best possible sound - even better than on the original 45! A 7inch not to be missed. Choca Las Caderas keeps its promises: with this tune the hips certainly won't stay still! The song builds its vibe with a funky guitar riff, a groovy bass line and Roja's virtuoso piano playing. The horn section and the vocals drive the tune to its climax: pure fire for the dance floor! On the flipside there‘s another jewel: Al Ritmo del Bump Bump - a Peruvian cover version of "Soulful Strut" by the US Soul-Jazz band "Young-Holt Unlimited". Otto de Rojas and his Ultra 76's adapt the original in their own groove-oriented way of playing: faster rhythm, amazing wah-wah guitars, layers of electric piano over a funky bass and brass. Another heater for the floors!
Sicily Acoustic Quintet è un progetto nato nell'estate 2017 dalla comune passione dei componenti per i film italiani d’autore , quindi dall’idea di riproporne alcune delle più belle colonne sonore in chiave jazzistica, utilizzando esclusivamente strumenti acustici. Particolare attenzione è stata dedicata alla musica di Piero Piccioni, nello specifico alle colonne sonore composte per i film del grande Alberto Sordi.
