Fine British Afro-jazz from former Bellowhead trombonist and longtime world collaborator Justin Thurgur, whose debut boasts a veritable who’s who of London-based musicians: conguero Oreste Noda, pianist Kishon Khan, double bassist Max De Wardener. Border-breaking communication is key here; with brass roots in avant-garde jazz, Thurgur opens his groove-conscious sound to rhythms from all over the world. ‘Opener Straight Down To My Soul’ is a chugging, reggae-flecked number with wheeling Hammond organ and horn riffs that nod to Afrobeat; Khan’s own ‘You’ve Got To’, a careering Bangla-Afro-Cuban instrumental with flugelhorn solo, deftly celebrates our commonality.
