    Finnish composer Jimi Tenor announces his new album “Aulos” on Philophon Records with a new single “Afroeuropean”.

    Finnish composer Jimi Tenor announces his new album “Aulos” on Philophon Records with a new single “Afroeuropean”. It’s the third song promoting his new LP, first one “Vocalize My Luv” came out in 2019 featuring Frafra gospel singers Florence Adooni and Lizzy Amaliyenga, the second one “Sugar and Spice” came in July 2020, as a perfect summer hit for Jazz, Boogie, Soul and Afro-Beat lovers. "Aulos“ is Jimi Tenor's second album on Philophon. "Aulos“ is a woodwind instrument from ancient Greece - like the tenor sax is a woodwind instrument of modern times.

    It's sadly the end of summer, but London’s Naia brings us some funky “Heatwave”. Latino flavored funky track with a groovy bassline, energetic horns, kicking solos and sweet vocals it’s all that we need for a proper (end of) summer banger, and Naia delivered it all. The heat is on. I hope Naia will keep the temperature hot with the new releases. Naia are a sensational four-piece band, emerging onto the London jazz scene. An eclectic fusion of Latin, funk and neo-soul defines their sound, with live performances that never fail to get the audience up and moving.   Watch below a video to Naia new song “Heatwave”: Having members…
