Following the success of 2013's Private Collection, renowned crate digger and Southport Weekender regular Kev Beadle returns with a second selection of independent jazz sounds from the '70s and '80s. Given Beadle's credentials, it's no surprise to find a mixture of deep selections, inspirational sounds and pure left-of-centre dynamite. After opening with the spiritual brilliance of Archie Shepp's "Mozambique", Beadle flits between jazz styles, contrasting the uptempo wig-out of Chico Freeman's "Wilpan's Walk" with the effortlessly summery jazz-soul of Seawind's "He Loves You". Highlights continue to tumble from the speakers throughout, with the Brazilian brilliance of "Carnaval" by Cortijo & His Time Machine standing out.
