Spiritual Jazz 6

Spiritual Jazz 6: Vocals examines some of the rarest and most extraordinary vocal jazz recordings. We have included some well-known songs, as well as some of the most obscure. There are tracks recorded made for major labels, and some that were issued privately. But all of them speak or sing of a better place or a better world, and the world can only be a better place when they are played.
This is esoteric jazz, modal jazz, spiritual jazz – as performed with the human voice.

Pings & Mr. Brown – Look

‘Look’ is a 6 track instrumental project by Pings & Mr Brown. All the tracks have been created by sampling a multitude of cover versions of a well-known song from the late 60’s. The initial idea for the project came about when the two producers over the years exchanged beats they had created from different versions of the song. This resulted in a perfect concept for a record.

Now available for pre-order, ships on 10.04.15, on the King Underground site


Frameworks – Tides

Tides is the debut album from Manchester-based producer Matt Brewer aka Frameworks. Since the release of his first EP ‘Vanish’ back in 2012, Frameworks has been building a loyal following for his atmospheric and haunting compositions. Tides sees him joining the dots between instrumental hip hop heroes Aim and RJD2, the epic soundscapes of Cinematic Orchestra and the deft songwriting of Bonobo.

Now available on Vinyl and Digital on Frameworks’ Bandcamp

The Mighty Mocambos’ new album Showdown sets another cornerstone in their prolific career as a globally active instrumental funk outfit. While maintaining their organic approach of recording real musicians live on tape, the group has refined their trademark sound with a dramatic edge, a hard hitting production and ventures into less obvious musical territories.

Now available on Vinyl, with heavy old style “tip on” sleeve, including 24bit download coupon on the Mocambo Bandcamp page

Also availabe on Compact Disc by Légère Recordings and P-Vine Records Japan

Thanks again to Maxwell for the invite and to Danny Spice, Kam, A.M. and DJ Kingpin for their great selections!
