What I'm listening to... (July 2017)


'Salve o Mar' by Sabrina Malheiros
We're close.  So darn close.  On the 28th July, Far Out Records have the distinct pleasure in releasing the brand new album by Sabrina Malheiros, entitled 'Clareia'.  If you're new to Sabrina Malheiros, this is a perfect introductory track to catch you up on her exquisite take on Brazilian bossa nova that, this time, sees a small but refreshing injection of disco/boogie thrown into the mix.


'Phases' by Christian Scott f/t Sarah Elizabeth Charles
What a year for Ropeadope Records, and what a year for Christian Scott.  This beautiful track comes from one of the three projects that the genius that is Christian Scott has lined up this year as part of his Centennial Trilogy: 'Ruler Rebel' (which is where you can find this track) and 'Diaspora' have already been released with the third due later this year.  Both projects have the distinction of featuring beautiful vocal contributors from Sarah Elizabeth Charles so fingers crossed the third does as well.


'Lover' by Trope
Coinceidentally, all three tracks featured amongst this list come from record labels that are having incredible years.  And Jazz Re:freshed is soaring as high as anyone else.  We've talked about this release before but we still have so much love for Trope's contribution to Jazz Re:freshed's 5ive series that we couldn't help but shout this one out again.  Awesome work.

  1. This post was very refreshing, with all the mainstream pop and rap that's going around you barely find any good jazz or soul music. Definitely enjoyed your recommendations, looking forward to more!
