Vibe Shack: A Jazz & Soul session

"Hear To See by Seravince".

Seravince is an exciting new project from keyboardist and composer Vincent Helbers (aka Flowriders). His Hear to See album is sophisticated and effortless as its grooves seep out of the speakers. It is a deceptively fiery statement from an artist that continues to defy categorisation. This isn't neo soul, nu-jazz or any other limiting term you care to file it against. It's from the heart, well made and worth listening to from the first till last

The 2nd heads up is for the album "Eternity by AZANYAH".

Vance Taylor / piano,
Jeremy Wilms / guitar,
Jerome Crichton / drums,
Atu / percussion,
Kinah Botoh / percussion,
Mamaniji Azanyah / bass,
Immanuel Zechariah / saxophone,
Julie Dexter, Donald Smith, Obie Jesse and VenuSeven / vocals.
The impressive line up, Musicians, and the quality production on this album make this jazz project a must have.
You can grab it here http://azanyah.bandcamp.com/album/eternity

The 3rd album is..... "This would be a love song...If only i could sing by Ahmed Sirour".

This 5-track EP is the sophomore project by producer, musician, and also poet, Ahmed Sirour, following his debut project 'The After 2am Sessions LP'. This is the first part of an experimental project combining the Ahmed's two loves of poetry and music, fused with the ever-popular theme of love & romance...the good, the bad, and the humorous!

Vibe Shack: Vintage Soul Sessions (part-one)

Some of the 45s here are rare and hard to find &
some are not so rare, but all are quality from a
bygone era.
There has been a resurgence of interest in this genre
leading to venues run by DJs specialising in 60s & 70s
R&B and soul popping up in many cities around the globe.
The renewed interest in vinyl records and collectible
45s from soul fans to crate diggers and DJs alike are making
these gems harder to source and inevitably pushing prices up,
which is great news for the 2nd hand record dealers in
this market.
But best of all is that young soul lovers are once again
collecting this music and packing vintage playing soul venues

*We Got Our Thing Together - Cliff Nobles
*Soulville - Titus Turner
*Ain't No Sun Since You've Been Gone - Chuck Jackson
*Boogaloo #3 - Roy Lee Johnson
