For the latest in the rather excellent Jazz Re:freshed – 5ive series (previously featuring the likes of Richard Spaven, Kaidi Tatham and Ashley Henry) we have TriForce, a new four piece (threw us too) jazz outfit from South London.
The EP showcases a very confident band working their way through a range of tracks that evidence their unity and versatility in fine style.
After the initial frenzy of heavier tracks ‘Mikayoko’ and the funk charged ‘Red Lagoon’, you are moved onto smoother ground with the slow jam special ‘Righteous’. Things get more abstract on ‘Swank’ but still offer moments of the aggressive, almost rock edge we heard earlier on. The closing curtain is the bass led and saxophone complemented ‘Elijah’s Remedy’.
As is only right, this EP is being pressed on vinyl. But you don’t have to wait until then to enjoy it in all it’s glory. You can get a high quality download from Bandcamp now while you wait for the vinyl press to finish its run.
