Maisha (3). There Is A Place ‎(CD, Album). Brownswood Recordings, Beat Records. This is a beautiful record, and fabulous pressing.

There Is A PlaceTheres something universal in the appeal of an escape – of finding somewhere to relax and explore your ideas. Its a feeling which connects together the different parts of Maishas debut album. It’s a feeling which connects together the different parts of Maisha’s debut album. A deep record which provides grist for serious spiritual rumination, the music prompts internal reflection as much as it reflects the surrounds which shaped it. Each of its tracks provokes a feeling of intense revery which is timeless, on the one hand, but realised through a confluence of sounds and circumstances which are undeniably of the present. The six-piece group, led by bandleader Jake Long, bring a fresh slant to the weighty spiritual jazz tradition.

Maisha are a London six-piece led by drummer Jake Long and fronted by the formidable tenor sax and flute of Nubya Garcia and the electric guitar of Shirley Tetteh (both former Warriors). Their bag is spiritual jazz, meaning no love ballads and a regard for the legacy of Sun Ra and John and Alice Coltrane. Opener Osiris evokes Ra’s cosmic travels with a glorious ensemble statement that’s all rippling keyboards and fluttering flute, before shape-shifting into hard-drive. Garcia blows a storm, and Tetteh blazes a solo that owes as much to soukous, reggae and surf as to jazz’s guitar canon

Maisha There Is A Place. As Phillip Mlynar reported in his Bandcamp piece, . band Maisha launched as the brainchild of drummer Jake Long. British tastemaker Gilles Peterson attended one of the band’s shows, and was so enamored with what he saw that he wanted to release their album on his own Brownswood label. Maisha is a supergroup of sorts, and their blend of spiritual jazz lands somewhere between the 197os fusion of Herbie Hancock, Weather Report, and Hermeto Pascoal.
