The fertile crop of London post-jazz musicians has produced another brilliant record. Tom Skinner is a linchpin of the scene, having formed celebrated trio Sons of Kemet and worked with the likes of Shabaka Hutchings. This record as Hello Skinny sees him team up with the highly influential brass player Peter Zummo - you’ll know him best as the guy playing the trumpet/trombone on Arthur Russell records - for this album of ebullient club-adjacent cuts. The command of style across the record is exemplary. Footwork (‘Rashad’), New Age-y downtempo (‘Bluebells’) and ‘Go Bang’-ish disco (‘Mr. P.Z.’) are all funnelled through this very specific sort of freeform-not-freeform, improv-not-improv sensibility. The end result remains the same across Watermelon Sun - groove music rich in musicality, melody and feeling.
