I love it when a musical connection is made! I’ve been banging on about Zero 7 and then their offshoot, Fragile State, on this curation and then what happens? I come across someone new with a name that sounds like I should like them – Ambient Jazz Ensemble – and who’s central to them? None other than Neil Cowley who was in both Z7 and FS! Not surprising then that I’m already a convert to their sound which is “cinematic” in style with that relaxing tempo and those downbeat textures.

AJE actually comprise Cowley,(keyboards) Chris Hill(bass)and Ben Reynolds (drums) with the addition of a fifteen piece orchestra. At its heart it’s jazz influenced, but it’s accessible electronica really. Right up my street! Oh and just to give a heads-up to any of you out there who are into these things and because I’ve already put two Bonobo tracks here, note that Si Green (Bonobo) has a brand new track called “Ibrik” available via Spotify… which surely can only mean there’ll be a new album out soon. COOL!!

About the Curator: Richard Parsons

Richard Parsons - Musicto Curator

I grew up listening to music from the late 60’s onwards. Pirate pop radio; swapping LP’s with friends; exploring genres; daydreaming over the latest woofer and tweeter.

In reality I spent thirty years imparting imperfect knowledge of English literature and drama to young minds in school. Regrets? No. I loved teaching; loved the interaction with the pupils, and made lifelong friends as a result. And what better way to keep up to date with music? I always played stuff in my lessons, and as a result, I’d be bombarded with suggestions from my flock! “Sir! Have you heard…?
