Dangerbirds – Red Tea: Kaleidoscopically Entrancing Melodic Jazz

‘Immersive’ isn’t usually the first adjective which comes to mind to describe a standout track from Jazz ensemble but discernibly, the Leeds-lauded Jazz outfit Dangerbirds are anything but archetypal.

After forming in 2018, Dangerbirds took their time crafting their transcendently warm album “Shapes”. Part Ambient Jaz and Part Progressive Melodic Instrumental Rock, the album is a deluge of complexity weaved into trustable rhythms. The standout track is undoubtedly Red Tea, it may not use typical time signatures, yet, you’ll want to surrender your pulses to the alchemy weaved by virtuoso-level composer and guitarist Sam Horan regardless.

Never let it be said that Jazz can’t be accessible and fit for contemporary airwaves.

You can check out Red Tea along with the rest of Dangerbirds debut album Shapes via Spotify.

Dion Kerr – BLOOM featuring Adam O’Farrill: Cinematically Blissful Downtempo Jazz

Up and coming Jazz artist Dion Kerr has served up 6-minutes of sublime serenity with his latest tonally glowing feat of Ambient Experimental Jazz “BLOOM” featuring Adam O’Farrill.

The cinematically blissful offering of Downtempo Jazz carries some nuances of Avant-Garde within its perplexingly indulgent progressions which have plenty of aural curveballs instore. BLOOM has a way of demanding repeat attention by allowing you to draw more ingenuity out of the multi-layered resolving soundscape with every hit. With a new album in the pipeline, you’ll definitely want to save space on your radar for Dion Kerr.

You can check out the official video to BLOOM which premiered on August 19th for yourselves by heading over to YouTube.
