Jameszoo ‘Blind’ LP
Jameszoo (Mitchel van Dinther) returns on Brainfeeder with a new album - ‘Blind’ - embarking on further adventures on the fringes of jazz and electronica. He once again links with his long-term writing partner and keyboard whizz Niels Broos, Swedish bassist Petter Eldh and drummers Richard Spaven and Julian Sartorius, all of whom contributed to van Dinther’s debut album ‘Fool’ (2016).
Violinist Diamanda La Berge Dramm, pianist / organist Kit Downes (ECM), visionary trumpeter Peter Evans, trailblazing British saxophonist Evan Parker (a pivotal figure in the European free jazz movement), drummer Christian Lillinger, Brainfeeder labelmate Oliver Johnson (Dorian Concept), saxophonist John Dikeman and the acclaimed sound explorer Matthew Bourne also contribute.
For fans of Angel Bat Dawid, Sam Gendel, Flying Lotus, Evan Parker.
LP on 140g vinyl housed in a 3mm spined outer sleeve with braille emboss detail. Artwork by Philip Akkerman. Includes digital download code.
A short film directed by Sven Bresser and Mitchel van Dinther himself partners the album. The film stemmed from conversations that Mitchel had with the fantastic performer Saïd Gharbi who is blind and who was kind enough to share his experiences on translating his senses to something he can only partly experience himself. The film is being submitted to various European film festivals. Short clips will accompany the singles.
Jameszoo released his debut album, ‘Fool’, in 2016. A curious, at times downright awkward, but thoroughly enjoyable blend of jazz and off kilter electronics, the record featured cameos from two outright legends: Brazilian composer Arthur Verocai and pianist Steve Kuhn; in addition to virtuoso bassist Thundercat. van Dinther was rewarded for his bold, adventurous attitude in the studio by Gilles Peterson who bestowed upon him the John Peel Play More Jazz Award at the Worldwide Awards 2017.
In 2017 Jameszoo opened ADE with a very special collaboration with Jules Buckley and the Grammy-Award winning Metropole Orkest at the iconic Melkweg concert hall. The recordings of this momentous collaboration were released via Brainfeeder in 2019.
