Last night, an excellent young UK post-bop band led by talented multi-instrumentalist Julian Siegel, with Liam Noble on piano, Jeremy Brown on bass and Asaf Sirkis (very much in the Joe Chambers mold) on drums. Lots of material from Siegel's fine debut CD 'Close Up' was featured.

Last evening, Portsmouth Jazz Society's concert by the Scott Hamilton Quartet. Not cutting edge or particularly exciting to my ears but some immaculate playing from Scott.

Last night:

Donald Kachamba's Kwela Heritage Jazzband

Sinosi Mlendo - guitar, tin whistle & vocals

Moya A. Malamusi - one string tea crate bass, mouth bows, vocals

Gerhard Kubik - guitar, clarinet, vocals

Christopher Gerald (Khilibize) - rattle, vocals, tin whistle

They play Kwela - a musical style from Southern and Eastern Africa, isnpried by jazz and son/rumba/calypso recordings brought to Africa since the 1950's.

Inluding references to Gerry Mulligan tunes and Lullabye of Birdland ...

Friday night, it was the quintet Cohimbre from Cuba - unamplified, to my delight, and swinging - they turned the Wiesbaden Latin bar Curioso into a Cuban countryside joint within minutes.

On June 24 I saw Antibalas & Soulive at Prospect Park in Brooklyn for a $3 donation. Antibalas laid down some serious grooves and a lot of left-wing commentary and the park jumpin'. Soulive followed and somehow got the groove up a level! Fantastic concert, thousands dancing, deep groove, music of substance, Great time had by yours truly.

He meant somehow they kicked it up a notch from Antibalas, which in case you haven't heard them, absolutely kick the grooves with that jungle boogie Afro beat. There aint much groove left on the meter after Antibalas, Soulive must've taken it to 11!

That's exactly it, ScottB. Antibalas was smokin', and between sets I wondered if Soulive could come up to that level of groove, but they did hit 11!

It was a great scene, thousands of people in a park dancing and groovin' to the music, including many that were new to the music. :tup
