\\ Monocled Man’s Rory Simmons on new album We Drift Meridian

On our 50th Mixcloud show, trumpeter Rory Simmons talks to us about isolated islands in vast oceans; the concept behind his new album We Drift Meridian, with electronic/jazz trio Monocled Man.

We play the UK premiere of pianist Samora Pinderhughes‘ Momentum Pt 2, a breathtaking seven minute suite driven by the spoken word. Delicious Hawaiian soul from Aura circa 1979, catchy piano hooks from Lando Chill‘s new release, and tracks from the upcoming albums of Charlotte Day Wilson and Remi are all to be found in the latest Jazz Standard.
