Incognito – Tribes, Vibes + Scribes

Origine du Groupe : U.K

Style : Acid Jazz , Nu-Soul , Nu-Jazz

Sortie : 1992

Loved and respected throughout the industry, Incognito are a long-running institution, headed up by guitarist/keyboardist Jean Paul ‘Bluey’ Maunick. Released at the height of the Talkin’ Loud
label’s powers, this was the second release from Incognito’s second incarnation. It fully marked their transition from the very 80s jazz funk to the very 90s acid jazz.



For those with longer memories, Incognito were the sophisticated group who emerged when Light Of The World splintered in the early 80s. After a decade resting, but with Maunick writing with a
revived Incognito in mind, they were signed by DJ Gilles Peterson to his Talkin’ Loud imprint in the early 90s.
 


Tribes Vibes and Scribes built on the success of 1991’s Inside Life, which featured Jocelyn Brown’s gargantuan reading of Ronnie Laws’ classic Almost There. With American vocalist Maysa Leak now
at the helm, the album is full of hook-laden, assured soul.
 


The lead single, a cover of Stevie Wonder’s Don’t You Worry About A Thing was a bold statement, squaring up to the master’s Innervisions tour de force with aplomb. It earned them a UK Top 20
placing.



Tribes Vibes and Scribes is accomplished in both its playing and positive message. The dancefloor storm of opener Colibri its with scat vocals and soloing, never strays too far into indulgence;
there is also the urban, orchestrated soul of Change. The jazz feel of tracks like L’Arc En Ciel De Miles saw the group’s popularity in the US grow, becoming something of a staple on the
burgeoning ‘quiet storm’ radio strand.
 


Tribes Vibes and Scribes is infused with is a tremendous enthusiasm and exuberance. It is this remarkable spirit that has kept the group so popular for so long and this record sounding like it
was recorded only yesterday.

The hidden orchestra est le fils caché de Rémi Bricka, l’homme orchestre qui jouait simultanément de tout un tas d’instruments et doit figurer dans le livre des Records quelque part entre Paul le
Poulpe et les Beatles.

Joe Acheson, puisque c’est son nom, pense, compose, et produit ce Hidden Orchestra en unique pilote, en plus de savoir jouer de l’orgue, du basson, de la guitare, basse, batterie et une quantité
de percussions. Les comparaisons s’arrêtent ici.

Musicalement, le Hidden Orchestra parcourt les mêmes terres que le Cinematic Orchestra, mais de nuit. Un chemin qui dispute l’ombre à la lumière, une route pavée de silence et d’un choix
incertain entre le jazz et l’électronique. Night walks, collections d’ambiances sourdes s’écoute comme une bande-son automnale où couve la dynamique sous un calme apparent et précaire.

The Cinematic Orchestra – Man With a Movie Camera

quand la bande orchestre…

C’est l’histoire d’un film qui n’avait pas de son et d’un groupe qui se cherchait une image. La rencontre entre The Cinematic Orchestra ( une musique accrochée à l’âme d’un autre art – le cinéma)
et man with a movie camera de Dziga Vertov ( documentaire de 1929 au montage audacieux pour l’époque et à la prosodie innovante) se devait d’avoir lieu lors d’un happening au Portugal, forcément
inédit et forcément original. Cette performance se devait de pousser le groupe sur le terrain d’un disque (everyday, sorti en 2002) et d’un autre aujourd’hui. Ainsi on découvre les esquisses de
Everyday en deuxième lecture. Le DVD, man with a movie camera qui sort sur Ninjatune met davantage en avant la musique des chouchous du label que le cinéma assez « conceptuel » de Vertov. Jouant à
fond sur la mythologie du cinéma muet Work it, Voyage , Odyssey et même si l’expérience n’est pas neuve mais on ne se lasse pas de Jason Swinscoe et de son indéniable génie à mettre en scène et
en sons de grande émotions Dawn. Il y a presque dix ans, Aphex Twin, en sonorisant ‘Nosferatu’ de Murnau au Barbican Center a peut-être lancé le mouvement qui aujourd’hui voit toute une
génération s’approprier non plus les ambiances cinématographiques de leurs pairs mais littéralement coloniser les pellicules en 35mm et autres (cf. les séances de cinémixing qui abondent,
l’excellente collection cinémix’ sortie chez Universal Jazz). A ce jeu-là The Cinematic Orchestra, de par la qualité de la production très organique ici, conforte sa place de chef de rang.

From Official Myspace :

Founded in 2001 in Prague, Czech Republic, Alvik has become a driving force behind the best sounds resonating in Europe today.

Alvik was built on their performances in Prague’ss smaller jazz clubs before graduating to larger halls, playing across Europe and touring the Czech Republic and the United States . With this
growth the group’s sound has evolved into its present form with a style which is as easy to listen to as it is hard to define.

Alvik is the perfection of elements brought by each of its members: front singer and songwriter-singer Anya Stuart, who has helped the band cross into the international scene with her North
American roots; Bharata Rajnosek, hornman who cuts between sax, flute and trumpet; Petr Tichy, compelling stand-up bass player, Mishan Pajdiak on drums and samples from Prague and Audun Nedrelid,
with his Norweigian fingers gracing the keyboard.

Together, Alvik breathes a new kind of jazz that transgresses a wide variety of styles and tempos from abstract hip-hop to broken beats to drum and bass and Latin rhythms.

Over the years Alvik has developed more into a project. Hosting few concerts per year in their native Prague or at European festivals, Alvik thrives on the on-stage convergence of the many guest
artists involved in the project. Starting in 2004 with an intense collaboration with the Apollon Quartet and Jazz legend Emil Viklicky, Alvik has continued work with their original bass player
Martin Zpevak, and added many other names to the list such as Norwegian hornman Oyvind Svendsen, American vocalist Tonya Graves and Czech pianist/flutist Vitek Pospisil.

Most recently Alvik has enjoy a cooperation with Slovakian jazz drummer Martin Valihora , who played as a guest on their E.P. Cold June (2007) as well as the greater part of the Forms Apart album
(October 2008).

The collaboration spirit in Alvik continues well into the studio as they have had remixes done by artists from Prince of Tennis to Ishfaq

Koop – Coup De Grace 1997-2007

https://i1.wp.com/hearthis.co.uk/images/Koop.jpg

Note :

http://www.myspace.com/koop

Originaire de Suède, Koop est un duo Electro-Jazz composé de Oscar Simonsson et Magnus Zingmark. Leur parcours commence en 1997 avec l’ expérimental et minimaliste  »Sons Of Koop ». En 2001
l’album « Waltz For Koop » se veut plus jazz, du coup le style s’affine et l’identité du groupe se révèle. C’est en 2006 que Koop sort l’album « Koop Islands », un disque pillé par les
compilations Lounge et Downtempo et dont le titre « Koop Island Blues » continue d’apparaître sur certaines 4 ans plus tard ! La sortie de leur Best Of  le mois dernier est l’occasion
parfaite pour vous faire découvrir les titres qui ont fait leur renommée.
