Hitting the shelves next month is the We Out Here compilation, featuring some of the musicians that are making London one of the more exciting scenes in jazz, improvised music, and all the cool stuff that doesn’t fit neatly into a single category. It’s getting released by the Brownswood Recordings label, which was founded UK tastemaker Gilles Petersen. Many of the UK-based under-the-radar artists you read about on this site (and my monthly Bandcamp Daily column) don’t fly under Petersen’s radar, so if you’re unfamiliar with the guy, then let me just say I recommend his recommendations.
Some of the musicians on this compilation you’ve heard previously on this site. The music of Moses Boyd, Shabaka Hutchings, Ezra Collective, and Theon Cross have all received warm recommendations from these parts, but there are others that will be new to both you and I. That’s pretty cool. Give a listen to three of the tracks…
We Out Here releases February 9th, 2018 on Brownswood Recordings.
Learn more about the album, and pre-order it, on their Bandcamp page.
