Album Review \\ Ruby Rushton’s Vol 2 recorded in 24 hours with “utterly warranted confidence”
For many contemporary artists, the prospect of recording an LP in twenty-four hours would be daunting to say the least. However, it’s becoming something of a calling card for 22a founder and multi-instrumentalist Ed Cawthorne aka. Tenderlonious. With both volumes of Trudy’s Songbook and his forthcoming 22Archestra project, he’s worked within constraints to create fresh and exhilarating Jazz-funk that captures the creative vitality of the South London scene.
Rhythm Section call the record ‘another step up for the UK scene’ and their high praise isn’t misplaced. Whether listening on wax or digitally, over the club sound system or the kitchen radio, make sure you give this one the time and dedication it deserves.
