Isle of Magic

This arrived to my headphones very recently but i've played it through almost every day since. If you like your Afro-Jazz and looking for something that sounds deeply authentic then look no further than the Isle of Magic album. The Italian producer Andrea Benini is the man behind Mop Mop and worked on the album with Anthony Joseph and JB's legend Fred Wesley.  The album was recorded between Germany and Italy with the use of vintage analog equipment to achieve a sound with all the “warm” qualities of vintage analog tape recordings, part of the reason this moody foray into percussive rhythms, chanting and Caribbean flavours works so well.
