STYLIN - Rare grooves, hi-tech jazz and other worldly fusions

The QuantumLounge mainframe has been brought back to life, so check the site for Stylin 196 & 197.
This report is for Stylin 198 which should be online soon too. Some phone and hotel problems, as well as the fact that she was just about to go for soundcheck, almost conspired against me bringing you the interview with Bembe Segue. Stylin regulars would have picked up that I'm quite a fan, having named her alongside Jill Scott as one of my favourite vocalists of 2004, the year in which she had 2 tunes in my best of the year (Sleepwalker's 'Into the Sun' and Mark de Clive-Lowe's 'State of the Mental'). As the interview revealed, part of the reason for her unique rapid-syllable singing style comes from her background as a rapper.
Collaborations, she's had plenty: IG Culture, Nicola Conte, Ty, Mark de Clive-Lowe, 4 Hero, Bugz in the Attic, Alex Attias, Sleepwalker, Silhouette Brown, Da Lata, 2 Banks of Four and more. She assures us that her debut solo album is in the works, but given that she is using a 14-piece band, it's not proving a simple exercise. I was also happy to hear her confirm what we heard from Kyoto Jazz Massive's Shuya Okino: that she is performing a vocal version of Sleepwalker's classic 'Ai-No-Kawa' (with lyrics by Patrick Forge) with the band themselves. They will also record a studio version of KJM's 'Eclipse', which should be incredible based on the live version Shuya played for us when he was in Melbourne.
So I can't believe my luck that Bembe's visiting Melbourne to perform. She plays Open Sesame at Honkytonks on Thursday with Mark de Clive-Lowe handling decks, MPC and keys, Lance Ferguson aka Lanu on guitar, plus some added live drums. This will definitely be a performance to check. Hope to see you there.
