Live album Welcome to the Hills is looking pretty inspiring. You kind of feel it in your gut. Out this month on vinyl from the Yussef Dayes trio, the Cashmere Thoughts release was recorded in Copenhagen last year. Super chops up-for-it drummer Yussef Dayes flying through with Rocco, son of bass guitar legend Pino, Palladino on bass guitar leading the title track off and Charlie Stacey, keys, synth, nestling alert in the slipstream ready to feed in behind Dayes: the whole thing in its best passages becomes a three-way flow. Tracks are: 1 Black Love – Amazonian Springs; 2 Jamaican Links; 3 Odyssey; 4 Gully Side; 5 For My Ladies (Live in Copenhagen, July 9, 2019); 6 Palladino Sauce; 7 Welcome to the Hills; 8 Yesterday Princess; 9 Encore – Babylon Burning; 10 Purple Skies – Libations; 11 Ride Out; 12 Nipsey Tha Great.
