Renaissance: Vinyl LPBWOOD275LP
Release Date: 15th July
One of UK jazz's key players steps into the spotlight with a fierce, direct, and sonically deep record inspired by global shifts over the last 4 years in the form of the pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement. It's a liberating record, it's emotional, it's angry and the playing is absolutely incredible. A key jazz record this year.
For those who dig: Theon Cross, Emma-Jean Thackray, Binker & Moses, Yussef Kamaal...
