Product Description

Product Description

Pioneers of the London acid jazz scene, The Brand New Heavies are a British music institution whose unique mix of jazz, funk and soul has lit up the UK music scene for well over two decades. And now they are back with their first full studio album in over six years, Forward, featuring original vocal collaborator N’Dea Davenport and introducing new vocalist Dawn Joseph. Forward will be released on the 6th May on HeavyTone Recordings. The founding and ever-present trio of Jan Kincaid, Simon Bartholomew and Andrew Love Levy on drums/keyboards, guitar and bass respectively were influential in creating what became known as the Acid Jazz scene of the early 90’s. 16 top 40 singles and over 2 millions albums followed and they have since steered The Brand New Heavies into the new millennium, where they remain as influential and respected around the world as ever. The Heavies have in fact been a unique fixture of the British music scene for a quarter of a century. When asked about the secret of their longevity, Jan Kincaid said this: ‘There is something unique about the Brand New Heavies that has to do with the make-up and, at the same time, is greater than that. We’ve been together so long that we have the grounding and the history. We started as a live band and did it hard, just playing clubs, pubs, anywhere that would have us for a long time before we got a record deal. We weren’t just centred around a record, and that’s the way it should be.’

5.0 out of 5 stars A classy return 13 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Finally it's out! - the long awaited new album from Te Brand New Heavies. I haven't stopped playing it. Tracks like Sunlight, On the one and Lights have been ON REPEAT! At first I was very disappointed to see that long-time Heavies vocalist N'dea Davenport only featured on 3 (yes - 3!!) of the album's 14 tracks. I thought this album was going be another BNH and N'dea collaboration but clearly things changed along the way. It's hard because for a lot of fans, N'dea is THE vocalist for the BNH. For sure, she is the voice of their biggest hits and she fronted the band during their peak years in the 90s and again for the last big comeback in 2006 on Get used to it. The Brother Sister album is one of my favourite albums of all time, so I suppose I was wishing for a comeback album that would hit that golden standard. For me, the BNH + N'dea = magic. Preview tracks Sunlight and Addicted were misleading because although they feature N'dea on vocals, they don't represent the project as a whole. Aside from those 2 sterling collaborations, N'dea only features on one more track, Do you remember. On top of that, N'dea didn't show at the big Koko gig in Camden last week, so it appears at this stage that their on-off relationship is somewhat off again - which is a shame.
However, the music on the new album is b r i l l i a n t and I am very impressed. Of course, I love the N'dea tracks the most. "Sunlight" is the best! -A gorgeous, uplifting 7 minute slice of old school disco, which is as good as any of their classic hits like Dream come true. The first half of the album follows the traditional Heavies pattern with infectious instrumental funk workouts like the title track "Forward", the sparkling N'dea collaborations and the catchy Jan Kincaid sung "On the one".

5.0 out of 5 stars The wait is finally over!! 14 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What an album....
I bought this when it was released a couple of months ago & have played several times since.
This album is like a fine wine- the more you sample, the better it becomes.
BNH have certainly expressed their musical excellence with a marvellous combination of funky dance tracks, superb instrumentals (Itzine, Forward)together with a brilliant re-working of the 80s classic from Players Association.
Other stand out tracks for me are Addicted, Heaven and Sunlight.. My only doubtful track is Spice of Life.
Great album & well overdue from BNH.
Lets hope the next one is quicker!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Compendium of Funk Bass Lines. 31 July 2013
By Bruce TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's been a while since we have had a new album, but this is certainly back to their best and while it's not groundbreaking or cutting edge - this is great fun music, that makes you want to dance, while retaining an air of sophistication.

Production is wonderful and everything sounds like the best from this genre - whether it's funk, disco, R&B, reggae and many other dance music styles - but all done with a real live band, who have the experience and skill to pull off anything that they attempt.

There are a variety of vocalists who all sound distinctive and stylish - much is made of the return of N'Dea Davenport, who only sings on a few tracks but the others are just as good and it all adds up to a feel of being like a summary of their career so far - much like Incognito's Transatlantic RPM was for them.

What stands out for me though are Andrew Levy's bass lines, which cut through every mix and add a distinctive groove. He has to be one of the best bass players working in this genre anywhere and his sound/tone, imaginative note choices and rhythmic placement are excellent. Every track is like a lesson in funk bass of the last 40 years.

"On the One" sounds familiar already and has been played a lot on the radio - especially Jazz FM. While many other tracks feel like they are covers of tracks from the golden era of dance music - "Turn the Music Up" is actually a cover of a hit by the Players Association from the late 70s - but once again, livened up by fantastic bass playing.

Overall a great-sounding album with many stand-out grooves, that is just great fun. Recommended for lovers of old-school funk and R&B.

4.0 out of 5 stars BNH back with a bang. 17 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the BNH's best album since Shelter, with a uptempo vibe across most of the tracks. My favourite standout tracks are Forward, Sunlight and Addicted.

4.0 out of 5 stars I agree with J. Taylor "chicoeldivo":s review! 4 Jun 2013
By Ramses
Format:Audio CD
I agree with J. Taylor "chicoeldivo":s review! I was expecting N'Dea's vocals on some more tracks more! I like Jan's vocals on "One more for the road" very much, but the Heavies really need N'Dea. I also agree with another reviewer that the booklet is kind of useless and has not much to offer. I also got it signed through Pledge Music, but I miss N'Dea's signature.
It's a good CD but I had been waiting a long time and expected more.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointed 19 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Finally the new album of the BNH has been released. As an admirer of their very funky music I just had to buy the CD. Especially having N'Dea Davenport back in the band. However, the songs are not bad but if you are looking for music that makes you want to sing and dance this might be not the right choice for you.
I am buying CDs to a) support the musicians and b) for the booklet. The booklet has nothing to offer but the thanks from the band members. No lyrics, no pictures, no extra stuff.

If you are a real BNH fan you will still love this purchase.
