FIRST LISTEN: A soulful listen; you don't need to know that George Duke recorded this album in Rio de Janeiro, nor know that the title of it is A Brazilian Love Affair to appreciate that the Brazilian greats such as Jorge Ben Jor were greatly influential in its rhythms and instrumentation. Still idyllic and stimulating.

FIRST LISTEN: Eddie teams up with some Headhunters to produce a steamy, night-time balcony-looking-over-an-old-European-city-whilst-smoking-cigarettes listen. His trumpet playing is some of the world's best and it's fully on display with this grooveful jazz album.

FIRST LISTEN: Expansions is an album stitched together with a soulful fabric and a jazz-funk thread. It sounds as though there's a Tropicalia-inspired element, which is never a bad thing as it weaves itself into the voice of the band organically to create an original Summer-sounding disc.

FIRST LISTEN: A raging bull of an album. It's utterly absurd how emotionally raucous it is. I'd love to get my hands on the mixer to isolate each instrument in turn to work out what the fuck is happening. Amazing - the funky drumming, the driving bass, the shithousing electric guitar, all of it amazing.

FIRST LISTEN: Very intricate drumming, you can clearly tell Alphonse was the real deal. When it comes to the album's whole package, it might not be prime Eleventh House but it's still an enjoyable jazz-funk LP nonetheless.
