Hurricane Season in Brooklyn will simply grow and grow. The album is simply too deep to stay down, to rich to stay in the tail. You'll hear reggae, jazz, funk and world work its way through this concise long player, and it'll stick in the dome on first listen. Production is clever - authentic and intimate. The impact of this record harks back to the days when Gilles Peterson and Patrick Forge ruled the airwaves with their shows and Straight no Chaser ruled print; when new jazz music would not just embrace it's roots but reinvigorate it. The title track drops like drum and bass, whereas some of the slower joints are crammed with musical treats and can expect to be sampled by beat heads. Worth checking the excellent NPR article on Analogue Players Society to learn more but don't leave this page without purchasing the best joint in years.
