#laurent¥auriol# Le groove, le groove seulement, le groove encore !...C'est le socle des différents styles abordés qui fait le pont entre Afrique, Caraïbes, Amérique Latine, et soul jazz des EU. Cocktail parfaitement réussi avec ce savoir-faire et cette touche typiquement british. Chapeau bas !... Favorite track: If I Know.

Derrick Ah Sam with touches of broken beat, blunted hip hop, highlife, Latin, jazz and UK soul running through the tracks (all evident on vast cornucopia of styles in the singles so far), this certain to be a must have 2021 release from this fresh 10 piece Leeds / London collective Favorite track: Flow.

freejazzy It was supposed to be an investment in the future as it hadn't fully been released yet. Decided to buy a share nevertheless. Adds value to the portfolio. Now its out. No regrets what so ever. Favorite track: Tittle Tattle.

kibetho I was convinced this wouldn't be for me, but it's one of those albums that breaks your will quickly in that respect. Already somewhere in my top 10 and I can't see it changing anytime soon. Favorite track: Ma Wonka.

about

Woven around soul searching, cautionary tales and parables for modern life, the Freedom Fables is the most accomplished yet by the Leeds / London collective, effortlessly fusing different soul, jazz and global styles with great musicianship and lyrics.

"Freedom Fables reflects on the power of narratives. Each vocalist on this record explores their own memoirs, a freedom of expression underpinning our belief that music is the ultimate narrative for unity," explains Tom Excell. “The record references a lot of music that we all loved during our formative years; you can hear touches of broken beat, blunted hip hop, highlife, Latin, jazz and UK soul running through the tracks."
