Another great compilation from WeWantSounds of the Mainstream label. Funk. Soul Jazz. It's all here. And it sounds like a glorious mixtape. Playing it over and over again.
Favorite track: Maxine Weldon - Make It With You.

"Kokoroko" is an impressive high-energy album that captures all of the talent and excitement of the current UK Jazz scene. The playing is fantastic, and the band is incredibly tight, incredibly strong. Highly recommended... rikm
