Description

"The Return is the logical development of Black Focus. Kamaal Williams digs his way through visionary jazz influences with his keyboard and mixes them with structures, sounds and signals from the streets of London that are saturated with them. The keyboard sound, reminiscent of classic 70s fusion works by Lonnie Liston Smith and Roy Ayers, is supported by rough hip-hop rhythms and cut-up arrangements of current pirate stations

Progressive, funky, cosmic, researching and informal musical - this is the sound of a musician who refines his skills into ever exciting new forms. While in the USA Kamasi Washington and Thundercat have started a completely new dialogue between jazz and hip-hop and were able to inspire young, new listeners, in London exceptional talents such as Ezra Collective, Ruby Rushton, Shabaka Hutchings or Kamaal Williams are doing the same here

"The Return" is both: return and refinement of one of London's most exciting musical trends of recent years, the forerunner of which was Yussef Kamaal.
