With a tough very brassy almost cop show 1970s feel to it 'Blues' introduces Tales From The Jacquard, Julian Siegel's hard blowing big band work formed around a ''Jacquard suite'' (a Jacquard machine involving punched cards is used in lace making machines) on which the saxophonist is joined by his jazz orchestra, a galaxy of top mainstream and avant talents from an intergenerational array of UK talent conducted by Nick Smart of the Royal Academy of Music and with Jason Yarde and Stan Sulzmann among the array of stellar reedists. Recorded in 2017 in Nottingham, Julian's hometown, and broadcast on Radio 3 Whirlwind are putting this fine record out on 25 June. Julian, who is to today's UK jazz scene as Tubby Hayes was to the Ronnie Scott generation of improvisers in terms of artistry, sheer command and sophistication as a tenorist, also features on John McLaughlin's new album Liberation Time to be released in July.

What's the track we keep returning to, the one with the biggest groove that pushes you inside? Yes. 'Truck Fump.' Marcus “Tennishu” Tenney steals the show possibly from his desk in the alt. oval office blowing his horn but actually no the groove is wail-y the thing most and a Butcher Brown speciality, a band that Darrel Sheinman's Gearbox label championed early on. Now on Concord Jazz, the US mega-indie going through a good spell again since signing Nubya Garcia, check the track out not only for its cunning worditry in the title if feelgood's a priority in terms of feel. Drawn from Encore, a 4 June release other tracks are: 'VA Noir', 'For My Love', 'Aviation (Outro)' and 'Hair Grease'. Butcher Brown, above. Photo: via Bandcamp. Link to trouser the track. Also, while in the neighbourhood, there's must-hear Butcher Brown input on an ace slice of Hendrixiana that we also dig a lot.
