Bob Hill Illicit Grooves
A class set of spiritual Jazz pieces here. Just going through them now wondering how I can choose which track to play first on The Illicit Grooves Radio Show. Great stuff...again.
Eighth album from Gilles Peterson favourite Nat Birchall. Deep, soulful spiritual jazz of the most honest kind and probably Nat's best album to date. The band features two drummers who, along with the rest of the 5 piece group, create enough kinetic energy for interstellar travel, which is exactly where the music takes the listener!
A wide collection of wandering jazz.
Tribute To Alice Coltrane is a showcase piece - although, perhaps, not reflective of the rest of the album.
I could go through each track saying how wonderful it is but, in addition to my fave, Falling Water does get a special mention. Peter Jones
More early explorations built around a tanpura drone sound but not restricted by it at all. The tracks are varied - some not as much to my taste as others but that's a demonstration more of their breadth than anything (I'm not a harp fan). Peter Jones
