Classic Album Series - Down To The Bone

Down To The Bone present a seriously funky all-instrumental 3CD collection of their first three albums, which have been unavailable in physical format for several years.

The UK’s leading jazz groove band debuted with “From Manhattan To Staten”, which went to No 2 on Billboard’s Jazz Albums chart on its original release in the Nineties, while one of the key cuts, the Grammy-nominated “Brooklyn Heights”, hit No 2 on Billboard’s Jazz airplay chart.   Both these tunes also feature as 2019 bonus tracks, recorded live in the studio by the band’s current line-up.

Second CD “The Urban Grooves” also has a newly recorded bonus track, a cover of Willie “Beaver” Hale’s “Concrete Jungle”, long a favourite in their live set. Third CD “Spread The Word” features a new recording – available for the first time – a cover of Beyonce’s 2006 hit “Déjà Vu”.

The 3CD package is available to pre-order now on Amazon - release: 22 March 2019

Soulbossa - Khari Cabral Simmons

Soulbossa is an uplifting, summery EP fusing bossa, soul and jazz from Atlanta musician Khari Cabral Simmons, following his two prior Dome albums “Moon Bossa” and “Clementine Sun” Khari, who began his music career as a member of India.Arie’s band, and who later fronted his own band Jiva, delivers this new collection of stunning tunes, highlight of which is the stunning “Samara Smiles”.  Also included is a cover of “Capivara”” by celebrated Brazilian composer and multi-instrumentalist Hermeto Pascoal.

The EP is co-produced by Khari with London producer Daz I Kue, now living in Atlanta. Release date: June 15 2018.

Ride Like The Wind - Citrus Sun

This is a project born of Bluey’s love for the guitar playing of UK guitar legend Jim Mullen, who features once again. Incognito regulars Matt Cooper (keyboards), bassist Francis Hylton, guitarist Francisco Salas, drummer Francesco Mendolia and trumpet player Dominic Glover also return.

The obvious difference from Incognito is that Citrus Sun is largely instrumental, with stunning funky instrumentals like Refugee and Calling Mr Wolf. There is also a five-part Krabi Suite, which closes the album. Says Bluey: “the bulk of the album stems from jam sessions recorded in Krabi on southern Thailand’s west coast.  This idyllic location provided all the positivity and inspiration needed to fuel these recordings”.

One highlight of the album is the assured vocal debut of the band’s percussionist Joao Caetano singing in his native Portuguese on the Marcos Valle-Leon Ware song Vontade de Rever Voce. Imaani handles lead vocals on Ride Like The Wind – while Natalie Williams sings lead on Send Me Your Feelings, recorded by New York-based Japanese jazz trumpeter Terumasa Hino. 

Dome 25 Years - Second Edition

A second helping of classics from the Dome vaults on this 50-track digital album collection to celebrate Dome's 25th birthday. The album kicks off with the Brothers In Rhythm mix of Lulu's "Independence" - a Top 20 hit in 1993 - and Richard Darbyshire's brilliant "Wherever Love is Found" and spans the quarter of a century all the way up to Simon Law's "Higher", featuring the gorgeous vocals of Chante Moore, and Eric Roberson's duet with Will Downing on "Lyrics of Pleasure"

Fire - Eric Roberson

After his impressive 2017 mini-albums "Earth" and "Wind", Eric Roberson delivers the third collection of songs in his trilogy -what else but "Fire"? Eric calls the set "my most outspoken and important album to date". Long regarded as America's trailblazing indie soul star' the twice Grammy-nominated Erro demonstrates that social comment is still very much a part of soul music. Opening cut "Slave Owners" features Philadelphia rapper Dayne Jordan.
