You might remember Cool Uncle from their latest track they debuted recently featuring Jessie Ware. Well, the duo—made up of R&B legend (and Dilla-sample mainstay) Bobby Caldwell and Grammy award winning producer Jack Splash—is back with a brand new track. Titled "Breaking Up," the song finds the duo diving deeper into their melting pot of smooth blues and R&B as the track's soulful vocals pull you into the eye of the track featuring legendary soulstress Deniece Williams (of "Lets Hear It For The Boy" fame) and Florida's very own Eric Biddines. Look for "Breaking Up" to be featured on the duo's self-titled album Cool Uncle out next month featuring Mayer Hawthorne, Cee-Lo Green, JD8 and more.
A trio set from the mighty Stanley Cowell – yet like so many of his other albums in the format, a record that's got way more to offer than usual! Stanley isn't content to just rework standards with a familiar lineup – and instead really shifts things around a lot, to create the kind of complexity we've always found in his music – and which continues to make Cowell's trio sets some of the best on the Steeplechase label in the past decade or so! The group features Billy Drummond on drums and Jay Anderson on bass – but it's clear from the conception that Stanley's the main man at the helm, an incredibly well-versed player who's able to shift easily between mood and style throughout. Titles include a surprising 10 minute "Xmas Suite" – which includes a few Cowell original Holiday tracks – plus the originals "Reminiscent", "Sweet Song", "Midnight Diversion", "Re-Confirmed", and "Hear With Me" – which features some especially nice kalimba work from Stanley! ~ Dusty Groove
