Bristol Fashion (A Unity Sextet Release)

A 14 track crossover jazz album (46m 47s) — released November 6th 2015 on LOA Records Ltd

Produced by Lack of Afro, 'Bristol Fashion' is by Junior Oliver - the bass player in the fictional group The Unity Sextet. It is the third phase in the Unity Sextet series of albums & the first in three years. Featuring Lack of Afro himself on various instruments, the album also features guest musicians Rory Simmons (Jamie Cullum), George Cooper (Nigel Kennedy), Chip Wickham (The New Mastersounds), Lukas Drinkwater (Lack of Afro) & Charlie Hearnshaw (Peng). Characteristically heavy on the bass & drums, the album combines reflective jazz ('Ariel', 'Mary Hancock', 'End of The Affair'), melodic quirkiness ('Hey Yo Mr White!'), summery latin stompers ('Cachaoito') & fuzzed out madness ('The Big Muff'), fusing disparate musical influences, but managing somehow to make total sense.
