Time Has Come

Is lifted from the "same monkeys different zoo EP" released by Germany's Moodmusic label from the album of the same name, by berlin/hamburg duo Penner & Muder. Nice slick deep house production with a classic deep soulful/pop vocal and burning synth stabs...The time has come, wonderful!

Through Windows

Something that i downloaded earlier in the year and to be honest never got around to listening to, you know filed away never to be seen again..Until yesterday while trawling through the mytea@om archives, I came across this, from a young Dutch producer, Crookram (alias Chris Angelovski) an exceptional sample-master with a def touch with production and having no insistence on any particular style. His music has been made so colourful by using an unusually rich variety of downtempo, funk, hip hop, nu jazz elements and breakz, released simultaneously on the bankrupt recordings label and on budabeats netlabel. It is still available for free download All 18 tracks, so go get it!...great chill out material.

From the Bankrupt review;
" album that has been 5 years in the making in which musical genres like soul, funk, hiphop and library music have been combined with modern downtempo beats and movie samples. his ambition is to focus on atmosphere and moody vibes, something that's become quite uncommon in modern day music. you can expect scratchy records, mysterious movie samples and a great talent for production, elements which have been praised already by many people involved in the downtempo scene."

ill communication

The last pick from our jazz session from the wonderful double bassist and oud player, Ahmed Abdul-Malik's LP "jazz sounds of africa" A combination of "the music of ahmed abdul- malik" and his 1962 "Sounds of Africa" LP's, fusing the west african sounds of 'highlife' into intriguing jazz compositions...Awesome stuff!

Madness Subsides

By now I had got through about 22 LP's/CD's, sitting on my balcony havin' a cheeky roll-up and an ice cold sapporo beer, the ambiance was sent..From the first few bars I felt transfixed, tune of a summer sunset, madness subsides....Pekka Pohjola is arguably the greatest electric bass players in Europe and here in equally great company with Tomi Parkkonen - drum and percussion, Eero Koivistoinen - soprano & tenor sax., Pekka Pöyry - alto and soprano sax, Paroni Paakkunainen - alto,baritone sax & piccolo and Coste Apretea - guitar. The main bassline of this piece was beautifully sampled by DJ Shadow on "Midnight In A Perfect World" Niceness!

Around 3/4 Time

Feel to share more of that Sunday all day jazz session at mytea@om HQ, when the kids are away the cats come out to play so to speak, something for REAL JAZHEDZ. The Jazz Quintet-60's groove is very similar to that of the Legendary Jazz Messengers. An ultra-hip Danish combo with players, Bent Axen on piano, Allan Botschinsky on trumpet, Niels Husum on tenor, Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and Bjarn Rostvold on drums...The Original LP is a bit of a rarity these days...Enjoy!

Boys and Girls..

Have been listening to loads of jazz today and this has kept playing intermediately throughout..From the famed 'When Eight Bells Toll' director Etienne Périer's film “Des Garçons et des Filles” An obscure flick chronicling a pre 1968 attempt at commune life by a group of societies disillusioned youth..The soundtrack is right on point composed by French pianist and jazz drummer Errol Parker, with the help of a young Jean-Michel Jarre. It's the title track we visit in all it's jazzscat flava courtesy of the vocal talents of Rozza Wortham. Her velvety harmonies floating throughout the impulsion of rhythm. A true jazz dancefloor classic.
