Wood Green spot Karamel has a sparkling programme coming up. Pop down if in the N22 locale especially on Thursdays. This week it's Ellingtonia and more. The great film session drummer Paul Clarvis also known for his work with Mose Allison, Pigfoot, The Rich Tailors, Babelfish and famously the percussionist on Harrison Birtwistle's 'Panic' that sparked tabloid fury in the 1990s when the avant-garde classical piece was played at the last night of the Proms, is in the room as drummer with The Prima Donnas. Next Thursday it's KeitaBeat who are guitarist Francesco Lo Castro, keyboardist Claudio Corona and drummer Cosimo Keita Cadore. The brilliant Noah Stoneman (known for his work in Xhosa Cole's Unity band) is in on the 23rd. On the 30th check out the Emily Roberts Sextet who play Brecker Brothers and Sco-influenced originals in the mix. Roberts is seriously poised and in the zone as you can hear above. Can't wait? Before her Wood Green show she is in Gary Crosby's band at Ronnie Scott's on Wednesday.

Initial listens suggested that trombonist Lis Wessberg's Yellow Map was too easy on the ear. But returning to tracks from the album out in October on April Records after earlier listens last week it's clear that there is a lot in the blend. There's a reggae undertow unveiled eventually on 'Midnights' which is subtle and a fine laconic wooziness characterises 'The Strip,' the latter studded by an appealing groove, the Fender Rhodes and Moog played by Steen Rasmussen not too overdone. Trombone overdubs and a carefully gathered polyphonic spree enhance the core melody. Percussion great Marilyn Mazur guests on balafon on 'Sister M'. That begs to be heard. Being accessible is hard. Wessberg cracks that code.
