Knocking us into triple figures, Black Classical delivers number 100 in our mixtape series supplying another heavyweight selection of private press jazz and sought after rarities. If there was ever one man who fully deserves to take our first accolade it’s our friend from Manchester, who over the past few years has built a name for himself on this here Internet, compiling an innumerable amount of mixes in his own right and in the process unearthing a ridiculous stream of forgotten gems and seldom seen delights. Lest we forget his mammoth 12 hour spiritual jazz retrospective that is still setting Twitter alight some 12 months after it first hit the web – he simply just doesn’t do run of the mill. So to this mix… righteous, spiritual and chock full of unreleased material along with some uber rare jazz nuggets. The David Lampel sounds awesome right from the off, and there’s

Since she dropped a slew of tracks on Soundcloud just over two years ago, things have been a bit quiet on the recording front for vocalist Liz Elensky, but with summer just around the corner here in the UK, she returns once more to bless us with a little taster of what might just be on the horizon again. As one of the voices behind the successful Emanative project (fronted by British producer/drummer Nick Woodmansey), Liz already has a number of features to her name and having spent much of the past couple of years singing backing vocals for the likes of Cecilia Stalin (not to mention guesting for us here at The Jazz Meet) it looks like the time might just be right for her to finally step back into the spotlight.
