Brillant new volume from Michael Reinboth despite the many volumes have remained totally seduced by this selection
A lots of good things, Aera with a great soundscape ( like a mix of P Glass, A Poppy, W Mertens) or the splendid cover from At les !!!, the long version from Shina Williams & His African Percussionists, All is well with the ambient day two etc ...
Favorite track: Line Of Conception.
As expected, extremely danceable in parts (typesun, class compliance), enormously jazzy (marnie, deacon), also new sounds (all is well, buttrich, croon), for me a bouquet of flowers inside too.
Cool – calm – collected: chapter 15 of this superlative series, compiled by Compost’s head honcho Michael Reinboth. 21 tracks, 8 exclusive, previously unreleased tracks. The exciting package comes as 2-CD / 4-LP vinyl. Enjoy!
The exclusives by Aera (guess you all know his brilliant Innervisions release), Arnau Obiols & KAYYAK (recently featured by Gilles Peterson in his “watch out for 2021” top five list), Ron Deacon (officially belongs to the Workshop-Crew together with other artists like Move D, Even Tuell and Kassem Mosse), Class Compliance my gosh – what a killer tune, Mille & Hirsch (operators of the fine Polish Records), All Is Well (Fred Everything), Ben Sturm (watch out talent of Leipzig’s viral underground scene) and Oliver Kieser (best known as Kieser & Velten with their releases on G-Stone).
This wonderful Esa Williams remix of Bantu Clan Vs Sarabi is also previously unreleased.
Several magazines voted the Future Sounds Of Jazz as one of the best compilation series of all time. With this series, starting in 1995, the term Future Jazz became a genre landmark.

Like so many others, this came like a bolt out of the blue and, even though it's well before payday, I had to have this astonishing album on vinyl to prove it exists. The feel of the tunes makes me feel like the Impressions do, Curtis Mayfield, the big spaces and instinctive horns and stuff drifting in and out. Great grooves and I can see lots of ghosts nodding along to this with big smiles on their faces. At last! Anthony Cottrell
