We’ve finally made it to the end of lockdown. It’s the best time to send our most positive energy towards all the people who have struggled during this crazy period. I give thanks for the fact that it went smoothly for me and my folks. I can’t wait to get back to the studio and share with you all some more music. For now, I’m recording from my bedroom. Shouts out to my girlfriend who was kind enough to chill and hang out with me during this session.

6 months after the release of Relaxin’ With Nick, Nicholas Payton returns with a lockdown inspired LP. Quarantined with Nick explores glitchy experimental jazz-funk territories to capture the chaotic and unpredictable atmosphere of living the pandemic.

Los Angeles keyboardist and composer John Carroll Kirby releases his first album for Stones Throw Records. Marked by its hypnotic piano work, My Garden is as meditative as catchy.

30/70 Collective members Ziggy Zeitgeist, Josh Kelly and Horatio Luna all drop personal projects and contributing to the excitement that the emerging Australian jazz scene brings!

And of course, so many more discoveries in this mix as usual.. so don’t waste anymore second and press play.
