RIYL: Bob James, Pharoah Sanders, Ornette Coleman, Kamasi Washington

Label: Naim Records

Bahraini-British artist Yazz Ahmed¬†has contributed to albums from Radiohead and These New Puritans, adding her unique¬†trumpet and flugelhorn style and giving them cosmic makeovers. ¬†Now, she’s setting out on her own. ¬†Joining Ahmed on the album is ‘new jazz kingpin’ Shabaka Hutchings on bass clarinet and¬†the incredibly talented Naadia Sheriff on the Fender Rhodes. ¬†There’s something indescribable about marrying a muted trumpet with warm,¬†vintage Rhodes tones. ¬†I love this stuff and I’m excited that Yazz is starting to gain some traction with the press. ¬†It’s about time!

Fans of Kamasi Washington, Yusseff Kamaal¬†and Songs of Kemet will dig every inch of La Saboteuse. ¬†Grab one of the 500 deluxe copies after the ‘buy’ link. ¬†It’s on the pricey side, but it’s got all the perks. ¬†Heavy jackets, heavy wax, big booklet, the works. ¬†If you’re in the UK, you can grab a copy from Yazz’s Bandcamp page HERE.
