Jules Buckley with Chris Wheeler, the Heritage Orchestra and Ghost-Note have The Breaks out in September and their version of Jerry Lordan's 'Apache' known for versions by Bert Weedon, Lordan himself, The Shadows, Santo and Johnny, the Incredible Bongo Band, erm Klaus Wunderlich, Jeff Beck, and many more anticipates release.

The album is themed around hip-hop and scratch culture with guests including Kamasi Washington, Vula, Mr Switch, Mattiel, Mr Talkbox and Cory Henry.

Buckley is quoted by issuing label Decca as commenting that ''We are raising the bar a little more in homage to the music that has helped define the Breaking scene and cemented its place as one of the four pillars of hip hop culture worldwide. ‘The Breaks’ are the sonic blueprint for the foundation of a scene that birthed hip hop.”

Check the very fine organ contribution from Rob Gentry on the track simmering at the heart of the incredibly arranged sound that spurts characterfully along.

Buckley plays the Proms with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Moses Sumney on Saturday 21 August.

Very sorry to hear of the death at the age of 86 of the great jazz-influenced poet and troubadour Michael Horovitz of New Departures and Poetry Olympics renown. In performance I think the first time that I saw him was in the 1990s at the Soho Jazz Festival with Stan Tracey with whom he performed extensively during Stan's lifetime. I met Michael a few times over the years, first of all when he contributed poetry to a magazine called Jazz on CD that I used to work for in the early-90s and I remember him coming into the office on South Audley Street and talking about Samuel Beckett and Allen Ginsberg. He was always a stimulating and erudite presence in conversation. In recent years I enjoyed his work on ‘Bankbusted Nuclear Detergent Blues (Jazz Poetry SuperJam #3),’ which the distinguished Beat made with Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon and Paul Weller recorded in 2013 at Weller’s Black Barn Studio and the Blur singer’s Studio 13. Michael's ''rewriting'' of The Waste Land, A New Waste Land: Timeship Earth at Nillennium (2007) was a significant work in the latter part of his life. The Poetry Society have paid wonderful tribute to Michael who passed away at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington. Michael Horovitz above with Damon Albarn
