London Neo-Jazz Double Feature

Today's music is from 2 contemporary jazz groups, both of which hail from London. Enjoy. 

 
 

Yussef Kamaal is Yussef Dayes and Kamaal Williams. They make buttery, hot, jazzy neo-funk. Echoes of Steely Dan about and Yoko Kanno can be heard. To my ears, they share some contemporary terrain with Vulfpeck and Knower. 

Gorgeous album, the whole darn thing. 

 

The next track is off of the Joe Armon-Jones & Maxwell Owin β€Žalbum "Idiom". I know nothing about these guys, other then they made a juicy album full of nice computer sounds and colorful instrumentation. I like it very much.
