What I'm listening to...

'Our Basement' - Ambrose Akinmusire f/t Becca Stevens
I've actually been rocking this song for quite a while and it's not sat well with me that I've yet to feature it on this site in any fashion.  Such an exquisite number from this Blue Note trumpeter with an incredible guest vocal by Stevens too.

'Another Love' - Alice Smith
If Prince decides to cover one of someone else's songs then it's a pretty good indication that it may be worth a listen.  Already the standout track from Prince & 3rdEyeGirl's 'PlectrumElectrum' album, it turns out to be the standout track on Alice Smith's 'She' album too!

'Uptown Funk' - Mark Ronson f/t Bruno Mars
Here's one that's come as a bit of a surprise - it's been quite a long gap since Ronson's last album and let's keep our fingers crossed that the new one will follow in the vein as this 80s-Time-throwback-funk record.  Rekindling his chemistry with Bruno Mars - following their work together on Mars's recent gargantuan-selling 'Unorthodox Jukebox' album - here's one not to be missed.
