Clap City Records, an East London based label specialising in giving new life to rare records, have reissued David Durrah’s ‘Venus Fly Trap’ single for the first time since 1975. ‘Kai’, a sultry Rhodes laced track, will feature on the B-side.

A 44-page zine accompanies this 7″ – an exploration into the life and musical development of revered composer and musician, David Durrah. Ranging from Durrah’s early life in Cleveland and meeting with Doug Hammond, to the events that led to the duo’s Reflections In The Sea Of Nurnen sessions, later issued on Tribe, this zine features information that has never before been published, built from hours of interviews with the man himself, displaying photographs taken from Durrah’s personal family photo albums. In addition, a ​short film​ has been created illustrating the events that led to the creation of Reflections In The Sea Of Nurnen.

The track has been re-mastered and cut by Grammy nominated audio experts at The Carvery, London

Wildflower, the project comprising Idris Rahman, Leon Brichard and Tom Skinner, continues its journey with the third release Better Times, setting ahead with a deep, relentless and unique sound, constantly evolving and effortlessly hitting the aim.The beauty of Blue, Yellow, Green and Red, recorded in London in 2019, lies in the openness to form and structure these tunes, whilst a sense of groove and melodic development is maintained throughout. The confidence and versatility of the musicians is key, and so is the interaction between them, characterising a natural flow of unfolding musical ideas and embracing a New York musically care-free ethic, without having to wear their combined influences on their sleeves.Each song has a colour reference suggestive of mood tone and internal balance, enabling the audience to concur that Wildflower is not just a band, it is as ever an experience and one that allows its listeners to emerge and engage in a time where a perfect fusion of global sounds and jazz exists as a remedy, one you can feel and enjoy the benefits from everyday.Better Times by Wildflower is the debut release on Tropic of Love Music.
Shrimp Boats by Lionel Pillay feat. Basil Mannenberg CoetzeeAssembling unreleased recordings from 1979 and 1980, Shrimp Boats is a South African jazz archival compilation from 1987 built around its epic side-long title track featuring saxophonist Basil "Mannenberg" Coetzee. The recording was made during pianist Lionel Pillay's November 1979 session with Coetzee for the As-Shams/The Sun album Plum and Cherry. Side Two is composed of material recorded in September 1980 from the session for Lionel Pillay's Deeper in Black album. The 1951 pop standard "Shrimp Boats" was first given its unlikely jazz arrangement by Abdullah Ibrahim (recording as Dollar Brand) in 1971. Pillay and Coetzee take this seed of an arrangement to its furthest reaches with their mesmerising performance. Although the title track casts a big shadow, Pillay's "Slow Blues for Orial" is a welcome original composition on the flip side that stands proudly next to a rare 1970s cover of Winston "Mankunku" Ngozi's "Yakhal 'Inkomo" (Pillay was the pianist on Mankunku's original 1968 recording) featuring saxophonists Barney Rachabane and Duke Makasi. The set closes with a nod to the contemporaneous jazz fusion scene with a take on Weather Report's "Birdland" from 1977.

Here we have 3 new unheard instrumental tracks by the group, and fierce versions of The Look Of Love, It was a very good year and Sometimes I feel Like a Motherless featuring Judd Watkins deep baritone voice icing the cake! Although this live recording at times has some volume and distortion issues the music is completely unmissable and as good as it gets. Comes in limited 250 hand-stamped sleeve.
Fabled as the city where dreams come to thrive or die, Johannesburg is forever pumping out the life-giving force of criss-crossing sonic tributaries. As this collection of specially-recorded new music shows, every generation must discover for itself what perfecting the alchemy of that expression entails. Indaba Is - produced and managed by pianist Thandi Ntuli and The Brother Moves On bandleader Siyabonga Mthembu, tackles that inquiry with refreshing insight.Overall, the pair also provided enabling briefs which harnessed the collective energy of scenes often seen as operating centrifugally to Johannesburg’s all-consuming pull, or a little further down in its tiers of visibility. There are several examples where this approach yields astounding results.Indaba Is by Various Artists
"Alèmayèhu Eshèté is no less than one of the great voices of the heyday of modern Ethiopian music, the swinging sixties which, in this country, went on until the fall of the Emperor Haile Sellassie 1 in 1974. On a par with Tlahoun Gèssèssè, Bzunèsh Bèqèlè or Mahmoud Ahmed, Alèmayèhu is a star at the top level of the constellation that once lit up the wild nights in the capital."
