Nostalgia 77 feat. Keith & Julie Tippett - Nostalgia 77 Sessions (Tru Thoughts)

Web: http://www.tru-thoughts.co.uk
Jazz is the key to this album from Benedict ’Nostalgia 77’ Lamdin and Riann Vosloo alongside longtime musical souls Keith & Julie Tippett. It features beautiful instrumentation and lovely vocals from Julie Tippett, whose tones are still dexterous, decades after originally blessing soul and jazz releases in the 60s. Flitting between smoky vocal numbers and ’out there’ instrumentals, highs include the elegant You Don’t Just Dream When You Sleep, pained Rainclouds and an odd number called Soothing The Rattlesnake. This is a powerful jazzy outing from Lamdin and friends.
