Listeners to Jazz Fm over the past few weeks might have been intrigued by an hypnotic, nu-age, jazz-funk workout called ‘Cuba’. Every time it’s been played out it’s caused plenty of interest… so much so that the cut wins a release on 16th December on DSG Records.
The artist behind ‘Cuba’ is (CHRIS) KINGDON…. one half of soul duo MATHER & KINGDON. Recently Chris enjoyed solo success with his ‘Free Your Mind’ track… a great throwback to the days of Lonnie Liston Smith, Mezzoforte and Rodney Franklin.
The new ‘Cuba’ is equally haunting…. simple but persistent in its rhythms with some great old school vibes and a Herbie Mann-style flute adding to the edginess and sense of mystery.
