    Polish jazz group Piotr Budniak Essential Group released an excellent new album “Heart, Mind & Spirit”. This is the group's fourth album, with all the music composed by the leader and drummer Piotr Budniak. This time, the band used both acoustic and electric instruments to enrich the sound. “Heart, Mind & Spirit” is full of warmth, melodies, drive and space. Wonderful composition and the band playing as one organism, absolute killer. If you like Mammal Hands, GoGo Penguin, Pink Freud, EABS / Bloto, then you will love this band.

    Swedish singer-songwriter Matilda Bond shares her new soulful single “To Time From Time”

    Swedish singer-songwriter Matilda Bond shares her new soulful single “To Time From Time”. The song is based on “Painted Poem” by Aldo Tambellini, a pioneering experimental artist and film-maker. “To Time From Time” takes shape as a musical exploration of the philosophical ponderings of the artist himself. The song is laced with neo-soul grooves, jazz style chords, smooth vocal melodies and atmospheric harmonies to create a soulful soundscape.  "To Time From Time" sees Matilda taking a lyrical dive into the tangibility of emotions, personification of light, time, love, lies and darkness and the movement of energy within people throughout the verse and pre-chorus; “time doesn’t breathe when it’s free”. Amongst…

    Guitarist David Hinckley releases his new double single “Your Man (On The Inside)” / “Western Nights”

    Composer/guitarist David Hinckley releases his new double single "Your Man (On The Inside)" and "Western Nights". The tracks are modern takes on 70's instrumental symphonic soul informed by the cinematic sounds of Curtis Mayfield, Isaac Hayes, and Adrian Younge. Great composition, excellent string arrangement, and his guitar sounds so beautiful, a bit nostalgic, and very cinematic. This man needs more recognition! Hinckley's guitars call to mind everyone from Wes Montgomery and his smokey octave melodies to Ernie Isley's psychedelic solos. The string arrangements, composed by Hinckley and engineer Elio DeLuca, are straight from the playbook of Thom Bell and his iconic work with The Delfonics and The Stylistics.   Watch…
