They don't come more strictly retro than the close-harmony Puppini Sisters. You find yourself permanently, no matter whether they play more recent material or not, time travelling to the 1940s, and just on the point of, yes really, digging out old records by the Andrews Sisters. Check out what the Puppinis (Marcella Puppini, middle harmony; Kate Mullins, 'tenor' part; Emma Smith, the high bits) do with Deee-Lite's 'Groove Is in the Heart.' On Dance, Dance, Dance the long-established trio do the whole shtick better than most with the added welly of the veteran retro swing band the Pasadena Roof Orchestra in reserve as they rattle through a range of fetching not to be taken too seriously ditties done for charleston, lindy hop, foxtrot, Balboa, tango, cha-cha-cha, swing jive, mambo, tap and boogie-woogie. Dance, Dance, Dance is out on 4 September.

Interested in a hugely influential UK jazz innovator… a godfather of prog-jazz to players down the generations such as Chris Montague… admired by the daddy of them all John McLaughlin… a player who has not had his work explored beyond the pages of magazines much over the years? If yes to all the above Devil Take the Hindmost – The Otherworldly Music of Allan Holdsworth by Ed Chang, who runs the voluminous Holdsworth blog Thread Of Lunacy, is certainly worth your close attention.

Published by Jazz in Britain, who claim the tome is ''The first ever book on guitarist Allan Holdsworth'' at 412 pages long – the devil looks to be necessarily in the copious detail.
