Already twenty releases strong, The Jazz Jousters have returned with their twenty-first, an homage to Herbie Hancock called Octaves. Contributions come from the likes of Mr. Moods, Bones The Beat Head and B 3 N B I amongst others. Overall, this is a solid release with some fine boom bap and dusty drumming from all involved and of course, fine Herbie piano samples. The good news is Millenium Jazz plan to release projects on a monthly basis with the next batch of Jazzy Gems ready for June.
In the meantime, stream Octaves on Bandcamp.
