Cut Capers are a 9-piece Bristol band whose energetic live performance and infectious sound have won them a cult following on the British festival scene. Mixing a swinging vintage-style brass section (think Caro Emerald) with funk, soul and hip-hop. Like all the best bands, (and many of those on Freshly Squeezed Music) their sound is hard to pin down but comparisons have been made to “Madness, The Streets and Lily Allen” among many others (The Bristol Magazine). Cut Capers have established themselves as go-to festival favourites, playing headline shows and main stage performances at some of the UK’s biggest festivals including Glastonbury Festival (official) and Boomtown Fair.

Melvin Gibbs has not been an easy artist to pigeonhole. The New York City bassist has had plenty of rock credentials (including Harriet Tubman, Eye & I, and the Rollins Band), but he has had his share of impressive jazz associations as well (for example, Sonny Sharrock, Bill Frisell, and Ronald Shannon Jackson). And Gibbs doesn't become any easier to pigeonhole on Ancients Speak, which finds him leading a group that is billed as Melvin Gibbs' Elevated Entity. This 2009 release draws on a long list of influences, ranging from African pop to funk, hip-hop, jazz, and rock.

The Spirit of the Golden Twenties is with us even a hundred years later and is still captivating people with flair and esprit from New York to Shanghai. But with prohibition, the stock market crash, flapper-girls and boisterous charleston dancing - the 2020s were a time of radical changes, too. Tape Five was already looking forward to chilled sounds in a sunny future, but with the sign of our times pointing to either "dancing on the volcano" or the swansong of civilization as we know it - we decided it was better to deliver a rousing party album! Tape Five, founded in 2003 by master-mind Martin Strathausen (favorite quote:"I did it my way"), have already navigated their way through many facettes of vintage/retro music, and since 2010 have been making a name for themselves as "pioneers of electroswing". Since then they have thrived on a mixture of beats using the means of modern times, but with song structures, stories, atmospheres, arrangements and live musicians inspired by days gone by, when enthusiasm for music boomed and musical individualism was paramount. "The Roaring 2020s" is Tape Five's seventh album.

Multi-instrumentalist L. Shankar’s fascinating evolution as a musician and composer took yet another intimate turn with M.R.C.S. Dedicated to Shankar’s father, V. Lakshminarayana, it also boasts master percussionists Zakir Hussain (tabla), Vikku Vinayakram (ghatam), and drummer Jon Christensen. The depths of the album’s experiences are forever aquatic, as in the opening “Adagio,” which floats Shankar’s double violin insights on a dark and winding current.

By the time the Brand New Heavies released Shelter in 1997, urban R&B was shifting toward the more organic grooves that they helped pioneer in the early '90s. Although the Heavies were into acid jazz as well, they smoothed over many of the experimental elements of their music in the mid-'90s, leaving behind a seductive, earthy, and jazzy variation of urban soul. That provided the foundation for Shelter, their first album featuring Siedah Garrett as lead singer. Garrett's smooth voice helps push the band toward more conventional territory, yet their songwriting is stronger than most of the contemporaries, and their sound is funkier and more convincing. While there are no standout singles on Shelter, it's a uniformly engaging listen, illustrating that the Brand New Heavies are one of the great underrated urban R&B bands of the '90s.

An adventurous fusion outfit, New York's Tauk emerged in the early 2010s playing a cross-pollinated brand of jazz, funk, prog, and instrumental jam band rock. Although friends since their teens, the bandmembers came to wider attention after Tauk toured with Umphrey's McGee and released their own 2013 album, Homunculus. Favorites on the jam band circuit, Tauk keep an intense live schedule, appearing at festivals around the globe. Hailing from Oyster Bay, New York, Tauk feature guitarist Matt Jalbert, keyboardist Alric Carter, bassist Charlie Dolan, and drummer Isaac Teel. Friends since the seventh grade, Jalbert, Carter, and Dolan played together in various bands growing up before forming Tauk…

Reissue with the latest DSD remastering. Comes with liner notes. A gem of a record from Japanese keyboardist Masabumi Kikuchi – one of those massive Japanese fusion classics that was partly recorded overseas, partly here in the US – with a sound that brings together all the best soulful aspects of both scenes! Kikuchi can create some really weird, wonderful sounds when he wants – but can also slide into a groove with the best of them – and, given the vintage of the record, may well be more inventive than Herbie Hancock ever was at this point in his career! The lineup's filled with great talents – trumpeter Terumasa Hino, reedman Steve Grossman, and guitarist James Mason – coming together wonderfully on titles that include "Sky Talk", "Madjap Express", "Alacalder", and "Sum Dum Fun".

The marriage of jazz and electronica has, too often, produced bland and lackadaisical offspring. But the United Future Organization manages to bring together elements of both, along with traces of club music and "rare groove," and create something that is both elegant and rhythmically propulsive, not to mention structurally interesting. Their latest album is an excellent example of what they can do at their best. On "Tres Amigos" Cuban percussion, horns, and piano are goosed along by a thick, bouncy bassline; "Flying Saucer" blends disco rhythm guitar with jazzy horns and a gorgeous vocal courtesy of Dee Dee Bridgewater; "Dans Ce Desert" is a surprisingly funky 6/8 workout with flamenco castanets, electric piano, and French vocals. In less gifted hands, this sort of shameless mix-and-match could dissolve into mere cleverness or self-conscious eclecticism. But these guys keep tight control over their sources and play the various elements off each other so skillfully that the result is an impressively organic and unified whole. Highly recommended.

In this double CD, the third for Leo Records, the original process of instant composing conceived by Scoolptures is powered by graphic scores obtained from the works of the street artist Banksy. His intimate and sharp stencils, motions of a suffering humanity, are transformed into the sound matrices of these 24 compositions. Nicola Negrini (doublebass, ubass, metallophone and live electronics), Achille Succi (alto sax, bass clarinet and shakuhachi), Philippe "Pipon" Garcia (drums, prepared guitar and live electronics) and Antonio Della Marina (sinewaves and live electronics) mold the sound into a pulsating, urban, tense or ecstatic conglomerate, densely fluid and dynamic, which are a sound equivalent of Banksy's stencils.

The prolific and long-running De-Phazz (also known as DePhazz) is a contemporary lounge project led by Peter "Pit" Baumgartner, a German-Austrian producer who has surrounded himself with a shifting cast of collaborators that includes vocalists Barbara Lahr, Karl Frierson, and Pat Appleton. Beginning with Detunized Gravity (1997), Baumgartner and company have explored various forms of lounge music, much of it balancing samples with live instrumentation, with innumerable cross-sections of vintage jazz and soul, easy listening, and Latin music. By employing the sounds of classic percussion and jazz instruments such as the trumpet and sax, De Phazz successfully create smooth electro-groove music with an unmissable swinging jazz theme. De Phazz is a unique sound that you must check out. This Limited Edition including bonus CD featuring eight additional songs and alternative versions.
