Stuart revisits the jazz trumpeter’s spiritual and joyous 1964 album A New Perspective. A milestone in Byrd’s career, the record innovatively uses a seven-voice gospel choir in a jazz context. A first for the time and with an absence of scat, the album boasts pure and soaring wordless vocals backed by jazzy guitar, impassioned trumpet and bluesy piano courtesy of legend Herbie Hancock. Byrd described his creative process as “modern jazzmen approaching a hymnal with respect and great pleasure”.

Also, glowing ambient music from LA exploring gender identity, traditional Egyptian oud and choral arrangements influenced by migration and piercing shape-shifting electronics made on the West Coast of Scotland.
