The Heritage Orchestra

The Heritage Orchestra - Telescopic

Big, big, big band sounds from the Heritage Orchestra from March 2005. Powerhouse tune written by Chris Bowden and arranged by Julian Buckley. Lifted from the Gilles Peterson BBC Sessions Volume 1 compilation. Opinions are devided on Gilles Peterson, but he certainly pionted me in the right directions over the years and this one may just have been overlooked by your goodselves. Here you'll find granite percussion and solid bass ably supporting the brass section. Recorded live and highly recommended.

James Mason : Japanese Bonus Grooves

James Mason : Rhythm of Life

All time classic ...

Polished up by those crazy Japanese boffins and enhanced with rare bonus bombshells. The original commands many $$$, not to mention the 7" cut included here. It's the single cut of "Sweet power your embrace" that swings. Flatter production, less snazziness, less chintz, more soul. Track 1 is the classic album cut, followed by "I want your Love" and NightGruv" finally the extra Sweet power your Embrace joints, the 7" and and unreleased version.    

Not recommended / Essential!
