'Gold' from on-the-up singer JB Rose hits the spot. It's missing something from a jazz perspective however and that is a really substantial improvisation (particularly a guitar solo) factored in as the song progresses. Of course it's not aimed at jazz fans directly. However, surely going down that road is one idea for a future remix because the arrangement of the song as it stands is relatable. By itself the song, middle of the road sunny-soul personified, was written by JB along with Neville ‘2b3’ Thomas and Chante Berry-Gordon. 'Gold' is the sort of number that you'd hear played on daytime Jazz FM or on a station like Heat and put you in a good mood from the off. Most importantly however there's personality in the voice. Out on 30 April

Moving away from the jazz comfort zone for a bit Dance Songs For Hard Times lets you off the leash and whips into riotous blues at the rollicking end of the spectrum. Nail yourself down, if you even can, to listen. Rev. Peyton’s lead guitar and vocals are convincing while his wife Washboard Breezy is very lively and just as key to the tidal flow of it all. Drummer, percussionist and vocalist Max Senteney is dutiful in tow, solid as a rock.

Very boisterous stuff and refreshing in this with open-tuned slide guitar part of the fabric and a fiery maelstrom of energy and exuberance suitably accessorising. Currently riding high in the UK jazz and blues chart – they all completely let rip. On Family Owned
