their second album of 2017 is an invigorating medley of explorative jazz expeditions, led by punchy, skipping basslines & effervescent flutework.

Stand out tracks include “Tisbury Truckin”, which is a stunning opener! Starting with an atmospheric soundscape it unexpectedly drops into a neck-snapping hip-hop groove with a punchy melodic line before effortlessly sliding into an up-tempo, afro-beat inspired rhythm with strong solos from trumpet & keys in tow. “Charlotte Emma Victoria” is another strong track & includes some tasteful sousaphone & trombone parts to add extra oomph to its bounce, accompanied by a soaring saxophone solo. The album ends with a classic Herbie Hancock jazz-fusion standard, “Butterfly”, which the band handle with finesse. A fitting cover that I have no doubt would impress its original writers. recommended if you like john Coltrane herbie hancock, the Lloyd mcneill quartet, yusef lateef or kamasi Washington.
