Quantic & Alice Russell with Combo Barbado - Look around the Corner

Latin-infused soul-jazz collaboration

(Tru Thoughts)

They've collaborated in the past, and belong to the same soul-jazzy label (Brighton's Tru Thoughts), so it wasn't such a giant leap of imagination for a full-length Latin/blues collaboration between soul songstress Alice Russell and producer and musician Quantic (aka Will Holland).

Quantic's Latin-infused melody is as strong as ever, sharply played by the Combo Barbaro and given a new lease of life when paired with the gently soulful voice of Russell. Whilst this doesn’t quite hit the high notes of a Latin masterpiece from the likes of Santana, the bossa nova beats and hip swaying melodies here make it definitely one to have on in the background at a sunkissed barbecue this summer.
