Junior Oliver

Bristol Fashion (A Unity Sextet Release)

LOA Records Ltd

Released: 13th November 2015 | 10 track acid jazz album

A side-project of (and produced by) Lack of Afro, 'Bristol Fashion' is by Junior Oliver - the bass player in the fictional group The Unity Sextet. It is the third phase in the Unity Sextet series of albums & the first in three years. Featuring Lack of Afro himself on various instruments, the album also features guest musicians Rory Simmons (Jamie Cullum), George Cooper (Nigel Kennedy), Chip Wickham (The New Mastersounds), Lukas Drinkwater (Lack of Afro) & Charlie Hearnshaw (Peng). Characteristically heavy on the bass & drums, the album combines reflective jazz ('Ariel', 'Mary Hancock'), melodic quirkiness ('Hey Yo Mr White!'), summery latin stompers ('Cachaoito') & fuzzed out madness ('The Big Muff'), fusing disparate musical influences, but managing somehow to make total sense.

"Really feeling a lot on this album. It's a strong start to the label!"
Dom Servini, Wah Wah 45s / Amazing Radio
"A great collection of 14 lovingly rendered instrumental jazz-fusion numbers that at its funky best recalls Bob James, Herbie Hancock, Johnny Pate, Lalo Schiffrin & Antonio Carlos Jobim. Damn fine."
Tom Patterson, Shindig! Magazine
"Love it! A brilliant concept & flawlessly executed."
