Festival time is officially over and itテ「冱 certainly been a busy one for my band. My favourite? It had to be the free festival at Imperial Wharf in Chelsea, London last month. Once you found the festival (the sign-posting was dreadful) you wouldテ「况e been treated to a pretty packed crowd that were ten times more responsive than any other Jazz festival Iテ「况e come across. Make a note to check it out for next year.

I have a meeting soon to curate a big Jazz festival in 2012 but I canテ「冲 give details at the moment [Ed: Booo!]. All this seems to have come from being involved as a curator of the 40テ「冱 area at this years barrier-breaking Vintage At Goodwood festival. Next month Iテ「冤l have details of 2011テ「冱 one. Itテ「冱 going to be incredible. Iテ「冦 also taking care of an area doing the 20テ「冱 and 30テ「冱 too now.

Watch out for news of a new Jazz Dance weekender next month for February 2011. Iテ「冦 just finalising details. Itテ「冱 all rather exciting. You wait!

REVIEWS

The Jazzinvaders テ「 3 (Unique/Social Beats)

The third album and a new change in direction. If youテ「决e into the classic Jazz Funk sound of the mid-to-late 1970テ「冱 then this is essential. There are so many bands copying Incognitoテ「冱 sound at the moment (I donテ「冲 need to name names) that itテ「冱 refreshing to hear something contemporary like this that has the influence of classic-period Roy Ayers but sounds テ「蕨owテ「. Itテ「冱 hard to pin-point any particular track as a highlight as itテ「冱 one of those rarities テ「 a consistent album. Highly recommended.

Finn Peters テ「 Music Of The Mind (Mantella)

After reading the press-release of this CD I was almost scared to listen to it. The CD was partially inspired by the pioneering brain-mapping experiments of Dr Mick Grierson and Finn's own long-standing interest in psychology, technology and the meeting points between art and science. Using bespoke software he accurately mapped his brain waves in a variety of states and translated them into notes and tones and started composing from then on. Creepy? On listening, I was surprised at how fulfilling a listen the whole CD is. As you may expect (given the source), the melodies are very angular but totally accessible. Some of the songs are performed over Funk and Afro Beat rhythms, some down-tempo. This project is so interesting I can imagine listening to it over and over and hearing something different every time. This is barrier-breaking stuff and I hope saxophonist Peters gets the recognition for this that could so easily be missed. I hope I havenテ「冲 scared you off. Iテ「冦 sure youテ「冤l love this as much as I do. Come on in and take a dip! Essential.
