Michael Feihstel What a beautiful masterpiece. Finest cinematic late night jazz in the label's first foray into new, non-reissued recordings. Hopefully the first of many to come. Favorite track: End Song.

Tranca Record Company Absolutely mind-expanding, pan-euro grooves. Better ambient than the KLF's Chill Out! Jazz on par with the library music geniuses of the mid-70s; hold the funk, please. Introspective, chill vibes akin to Tim Buckley's Happy Sad. Can I hear you say AOTY? Favorite track: End Song.

Multi talented UK Jazz Pianist Greg Foat has teamed up with Mercury Award nominated “The Bees” member and multi instrumentalist Warren Hampshire to collaborate on a new LP drawing on their diverse musical influences. Classic British library music, 60s Italian soundtracks & lost Americana combined with touches of modern classical, minimalism, Jazz and Folk. Featuring many members of Greg and Warren's previous bands and one of the U.Ks finest Jazz drummers, Clark Tracy, the LP also features an Edinburgh orchestra and soloists hand picked and scored by the boys.

Recorded all analogue onto 2" multitrack in Edinburgh, mixed down by Mattias Glavå at his studio in Gothenburg, Sweden then mastered and cut in Helsinki, Finland, it's truly a European affair flying in the face of the brexit nightmare. Release June 2017
