Fit Dub and jazz actually together? The former is super-structured music with a rather gentle flow, the latter often free-floating chaos and haphazard improvisation. (So much for the clichés). But there are some wonderful examples of how both can go well together: Starting with Ernest Ranglin and my darling "Dub på Svenska ”to“ Nordub”By Nils Petter Molvær and most recently the“ Natural Hights ”of the Guiding Star Orchestra. Now we have another prime example of that Dub and jazz are meant for each other: "Dubsouls in session“(Youth Sounds) by the Dubsouls. Behind this charming name is a septet led by British jazz guitarist Andrew Murphy. It plays extremely relaxed reggae in a relaxed retro style, smooth & easy with organ, brass, astonishingly maximum bass and minimum Dub-Mixing. The perfect steady background for the lovely, free flowing jazz solos from Murphy & Co. Such a simple recipe! Actually nothing special - and yet I'm totally hooked. The flow is simply amazing and the jazz guitar sounds beguiling. I can only say: Dub & Jazz belong together like butter and bread. And anyway: Is Dub-Mixing any free jazz improvisation anyway?
