Review: When it was first released on CD, Inspirations caused quite a stir. It was then made available on wax for the first time and soon sold out. Now we're treated to a welcome reissue that sees Los Angeles jazz singer Dwight Trible cover some of the songs and artists that shaped his formative musical years, with a little help from Manchester-based bandleader, arranger and trumpeter Matthew Halsall. Highlights include a rousing, near riotous cover of Nina Simone favourite 'Feeling Good' a spiritual, harp-laden rendition of Hal David and Burt Bacharach's 'What The World Needs Now is Love' - a radical departure from the original, featuring one of Trible's greatest vocal performances to date - and a poignant, heartfelt version of Leroy Hutson and Donny Hathaway's still relevant 'Tryin' Times'.

  1. Garden Dog Barbecue (3:44)
  2. Hopopono (3:53)
Review: Those who followed the evolution of GoGo Penguin since their 2013 breakthrough album V2.0 will already be familiar with 'Garden Dog Barbecue', a floor-friendly slab of ear-pleasing exuberance that first appeared on "45" a few years back. Here the track is given a much-needed clear vinyl reissue, backed with the laidback, piano-rich loveliness of 'Hopopono'. While that's good, 'Garden Dog Barbecue' is even better, with the Manchester combo adding bold, ear-catching piano riffs - tracked instinctively by Nick Blacka's double bass - to a typically sweaty, skittish breakbeat. It remains one of the trio's most effortlessly effective dancefloor numbers and is genuinely worth picking up.

Review: Matthew Hallsall's Gondwana Records is putting out a special series of 7"s featuring a mix of unreleased and special treats from its back catalogue. Next up on the limited series are Gogo Penguin with "Garden Dog Barbecue" and "Hopono" which first came in 2013 on v2.0, the Manchester trio's Mercury Prize nominated breakthrough album. Both cuts are the sound of the band at their best. These are high quality packages with artwork from Gondwana Records designer Daniel Halsall, cuts made at Calyx in Berlin, and manufactured at Optimal.

Review: Before landing a privileged spot on the legendary Blue Note label, Manchester's GoGo Penguin had released a string of LPs, through Gondwana Records, that have become notoriously difficult to find. Moreover, they are respected by the very best of the contemporary DJs, including Worldwide FM's ever-present Gilles Peterson. This deluxe edition of V2.0, the ensemble's second studio album, will provide you both with a decently-priced copy of the vinyl edition, along with plenty of added bonus takes and interludes that were missing from the original cut. Thanks to subtle waves of electronica and improvisation, GoGo Penguin are putting the "contemporary" into jazz and, along with that, providing us with an LP that is changing conceptions of the genre for younger audiences.

Review: Matthew Halsall's Gondwana label is seeing a busy August what with the imprint flooding our jazz charts with reissues and, of course, new releases such as this wonderful collaborative effort from The Gondwana Orchestra and Dwight Trible. Trible's voice is like silk, running up and down the delicate waves of melodies from the collective, with "Colors" and "The Creator Has A Master Plan" both capable of making the toughest of audiences feel utterly uplifted. On the flip, "Love Is Everywhere" shines bright amid a flurry of flutes and intricate drum percussions, while "You've Got To Have Freedom" rides off a much smoother, deeper sort of vibe that's got a little funk at its core. Wicked.

Review: These days, trumpeter, composer, arranger and band-leader Matthew Halsall is among the most storied names in British jazz, but that wasn't the case when he released his debut album "Sending My Love" in 2008. It seems fitting, then, that he's decided to re-introduce us to the album via a first ever vinyl edition that also includes a previously unreleased piece from the period, the bittersweet, slowly unfurling melancholy that is "This Time" (a cut that sounds like it should be soundtracking messy big screen break-ups and montages of unhappy lovers walking slowly in the rain). The original set remains a fine collection of modal-influenced jazz, with Halsall's various emotion-rich solos playing a far more prominent role than they have on his more recent albums.

  7. The Traveller (6:45)
Review: Since he released his first album 11 years ago, bandleader, trumpeter and composer Matthew Halsall has proved to be one of British jazz's standout talents. In recent years he's delved into soul-jazz and big band jazz territory, so it's intriguing to find that "Oneness" is a much more spiritual, pared-down and minimalistic affair. Using a mixture of droning Indian instrumentation, languid and leisurely harp motifs, selective horn solos, melancholic trumpet lines and occasional traditional jazz instrumentation, Halsall has conjured up a series of meditative pieces that count among his most beguiling works to date. It may surprise a few listeners, but many more will find it enchanting, otherworldly and emotion-rich.

Review: Following 2014's When The World Was One, Halsall and the Gondwana collective continue their spiritual jazz adventure with another immaculate narrative. Now with much more vocal prowess, singer Josephine Oniyama plays a lead role in the story, adding consistency and personality to the Halsall's swooning, cinematic odysseys. Highlights include the Hathaway-style half spoken/half sung "Badder Weather", the frenetic double bass and brushed drum crescendos of "The Land Of", the (lark) ascending strings and oriental scales of "Cushendun" and the smoky, faraway Coltraneisms of the title track. Modern jazz doesn't get any more authentic than this.

Review: Manchester trumpeter, band leader and Gondwana label boss Mathew Hallsall is right at the forefront of today's thriving jazz scene. He has an enviable discography that takes in a wide range of jazz styles and the spiritual eastern leaning sounds of When The World Was One make it one of his best. It's the sort of mellifluous record that swells all round you, lifting your spirits filling you with joy and hope. Helping that be the case are the heavenly harps and shimmering piano chords, koto and bansuri flute payed by his Ensemble, but centre stage is always given to Halsall's own beautiful, heart aching trumpet playing. From bold heights to vulnerable lows, this is as good as jazz gets.

Review: Mathew Halsall's Gondwana label out of Manchester is one of contemporary jazz's finest. His own work forms the vital backbone, but his A&R skill also brings on board the likes of Mammal Hands, a band driven by piano, sax and piano. Their ethereal sound captivates the mind and takes it on heavenly trips that can be loose and freewheeling and more tight and kinetic. Both of those styles are showcased on this latest and greatest 7". "Chaser" is a high tempo adventure on slick drums and urgent sax playing while "Prism" suspends you in clouds of pillowy sound.

Review: In the wake of last year's incredible Captured Spirits album - their fourth in total, and first for three years - Mammal Hands has decided to offer-up a new clear-vinyl pressing of their critically acclaimed 2016 set Floa. It neatly captures the essence of the Norwich-based trio, with Jordan Smart's squally saxophone solos and Nick Smart's mesmerising piano playing rising above alternately sweaty, loose-limbed and intense drumming from Jesse Baratt (who also plays Tabla on a number of tracks). The results are refreshing and invigorating, flitting between considered moments and sweaty dancefloor moments that brilliantly join the dots between contemporary jazz, spiritual jazz and more exotic, otherworldly flavours.

Review: Gondwana Records is an Independent record label based in Manchester, UK. Founded by Matthew Halsall in 2008, the label has gone on to release music by Dwight Trible, John Ellis, Mammal Hands, Nat Birchall, Phil France and Portico Quartet. The label has won a legion of fans across the world and acclaim from the likes of tastemakers such as Gilles Peterson, DJ Shadow, Mr Scruff and Bonobo. Now they present Noya Rao, a Leeds based electronic-soul quartet. Purveyors of lush, enigmatic dreamscapes and grooving electronica, they're led by producer Tom Henry with vocalist Olivia Bhattacharjee, bassist Jim Wiltshire and drummer Matt Davies. Said to be influenced by the Sub Dub nights at Leeds West Indian Centre, it joins the dots between soul, pop, jazz, R&B and electronica. For fans of enigmatic dreamscapes and organic/danceable electronica: look no further.

Review: This has sort of taken us by surprise but, yes, here you are, a' new Portico Quartet album! The British outfit have grown and grown since their early releases back in 2006, seemingly ahead of their time at every turn, and a new release from them is always seen as a breath of fresh air around Juno HQ. Jack Wyllie, Duncan Bellamy, Milo Fitzpatrick and Keir Vine return to Matthew Halsall's Gondwana Records, out of Manchester, with the trippy, explorative sounds of Untitled (AITAOA #2). Jazz doesn't really describe it fully enough, and ambient is way too loose a word for this smart and complex medley of harmonies, but those are precisely the first things you hear when Portico Quartet hit you speakers. Plenty of rhythm, energy and even a little bit of dread go into making this an experience from start to finish. Recommended!

Review: Matthew Halsall founded Gondwana Records in 2008. An independent label based in Manchester, it's gone on to release music by Dwight Trible, GoGo Penguin, Nat Birchall and Halsall himself. The label has won acclaim across the world and can claim the likes of Gilles Peterson, Mr Scruff and Bonobo as fans. Next up are the Mercury Prize nominated Portico Quartet with their powerful new album Art In The Age Of Automation: where they're now rebooted as a quartet after a brief spell as the three-piece Portico. They have always been an impossible band to pin down; taking in aspects of jazz, electronica, ambient music and minimalism but the group have undoubtedly crafted their own singular sound. There's the dashing and cinematic bliss of "Objects To Place In A Tomb" and the hypnotic live drum and bass of "A Luminous Beam" amongst other highlights.

Review: Vels Trio has been bubbling away for some time on the London jazz underground, wowing audiences with a suitably deep, cosmic and gently colourful take on jazz-funk shot through with musical spirituality. Celestial Dreams is the former Total Refreshment Centre regulars' first full-length excursion and it's very good indeed. After beginning with the Tangerine Dream style synthesizer soundscape that is 'Dormant Days', the talented threesome flits between dazzling, jazz-fired workouts (see 'McEnroe' and the similarly skittish, high-octane 'The Winter Games'), laidback downtempo groovers ('The Wad', the deliciously deep 'May as Well Be'), cuts smothered in vintage synthesizer sounds ('Pop Stuff', the drowsy '40.2') and spacey, quick-fix bursts of energy ('Ceegee').

  1. Hania Rani - "Nest" (Portico Quartet remix) (3:37)
  2. Portico Quartet - "With Beside Against" (Hania Rani remix) (4:12)
Review: Sometimes the simplest ideas are those that get the greatest results. This split 12" from East London cinematic jazz combo Portico Quartet and Polish pianist Hania Rani is a fine example. The two artists exchanged tracks, with the resulting reworks appearing on this superb seven-inch. The Portico Quartet's version of Rani's 'Nest' is simply superb: a dreamy, otherworldly drift through sunrise-ready jazz in which waves of undulating analogue synthesizer sounds, immersive chords and flotation tank vocal samples flutter attractively on a breeze of languid jazz drums. Rani's interpretation of Portico Quartet's 'With, Beside, Against' is arguably even more impressive. Sparse and minimalistic, it sees her add twinkling piano motifs and her own evocative vocals to a slowly unfurling, widescreen jazz workout. In a word: stunning.

Review: Since launching a few years back, Matthew Halsall's Gondwana Records has released some terrific albums from a string of talented but often little-known artists. This brilliant set is another. It comes from Hania Rani, a pianist, composer and producer better known for her collaborative work with the likes of Christian Loffler, Dobrawa Czocher and Hior Chronik. "Esja" is Rani's solo debut and sees her sashay between atmospheric, often poignant pieces that put her impeccable piano playing at the heart of the action. It's exceedingly elegant and picturesque, with Rani's subtle use of field recordings and crackling background noise only enhancing the listening experience.
