12" Vinyl LP Edition

Charles Brackeen "Attainment"

Omer Avital "Marakesh"

Omar Sosa "Eleggua"

This is the selection of some amazing jazz tracks recorded in recent years. Music that in our opinion needs much more exposure that has been receiving. It is absolutely amazing mixture of jazz, world, fusion, and funk transformed into something sublime what could be called the jazz of our time. Although using all of the traditional jazz elements this music is so full of current sensibility and fresh new ideas. Now's The Time.

STRAIGHT NO CHASER, Summer 2003, p.69
The view that I encountered amongst some 'heads' when I said I'd be presenting a show of contemporary jazz was one of thinly veiled scepticism," explains Kevin Le Gendre regarding his recently pulled BBC London show 'Now's The Time'. This superb compilation released by avid listener and label owner Zeljko Kerleta is testament to Le Gendre's vision - a celebration of contemporary music reverberating with the vibrations which form what Max Roach termed our 'Universe of Sound'. Opening with Charles Brackeen's modern day spiritual 'Attainment', the album travels from the eastern modalism of Omar Avital's 'Marakesh' and the Egyptian improvisation of Kadash & The Nile Troup's 'Elil' through to the devotional jazz poetry of Omar Sossa's 'Eleggua' and the subterranean jazz funk of 'Spin Marvel'. Very deep and very essential. ANDY THOMAS
