A heady cocktail of Chic-style funk-pop, sunshine grooves and scorched-soul balladry, ‘TBNH’ refines, reimagines and ultimately reinvents a winning formula which has won them sixteen top 40 hits and three million album sales to date.

At the end of the 80s, England discovered acid jazz, a genre that combines elements of funk, soul, disco and jazz fusion. It was hugely popular, especially thanks to artists such as Incognito, the Young Disciples, Galliano, Us3, Corduroy, Snowboy, the Sandals and even Jamiroquai. In 1987, the DJs Gilles Peterson and Eddie Piller even dedicated a label to the genre, Acid Jazz Records. Within this groovy movement, which finally started to decline at the end of the 90s, The Brand New Heavies were one of the torchbearers, largely thanks to the energy injected by the various singers including N’Dea Davenport, Siedah Garrett and Carleen Anderson. The gang led by Simon Bartholomew and Andrew Levy has never stopped making music, and over the years and albums they’ve always had a hardcore fan base. This 2019 vintage, simply named TBNH, marks a turning point as it has been released on Acid Jazz Records. The album boast a 5-star line-up of singers including Beverley Knight, Angie Stone, Siedah Garrett, Angela Ricci, Jack Knight, Honey Larochelle, Laville and even N’Dea Davenport with a cover of Kendrick Lamar’s These Walls, produced here by none other than Mark Ronson. The record is a wonderfully funky toe-tapper that combines Stevie Wonder-style soul, Roy Ayers-esque funk, disco à la Chic and Herbie Hancock-like jazz rock. In short, all well-known ingredients that Simon Bartholomew and Andrew Levy cook up with exceptional know-how. – Marc Zisman
