In the latest UK jazz and blues chart Alfa Mist tops the new chart just announced with Bring Backs released by the US Anti- label. Its high placing represents yet another boost for the UK scene in a chart usually dominated by reissues or daft compilations (you know the sort of thing Jazz To Drink Absinthe To or Ultimate Ludicrous Artwork'n'Jazz Vol. 3).

Track for the stack: The formidable 'Letter For Paul' an epistolary jazz message to the late Head Hunters great Paul Jackson is today's early-morning listening, looking like an all-day on as well, choice from John Patitucci, Chris Potter, Jon Cowherd, Marcus Gilmore and Rogério Boccato. Possessing a 1970s sublimated jazz-funk feel with a big impressive solo from Potter part of the recipe, ex-Vijay Iyer trio drummer Gilmore from the classic VIT chops up the beat to make choicest filet mignon. Cowherd on neat sounding Rhodes-type electric piano comps like he never wants to switch off and Patitucci's riff on bass guitar at the heart of the tune (there's also a little tasteful overdubbing) and what it's all about as a Jackson homage keeps it interesting even to the fade at the end.
