Review: 27 years after volume one helped to establish Compost Records as the go-to source for nu-jazz, the Future Sounds of Jazz compilation series notches up its 15th release. While this edition is not as packed with quite as many exclusives as some of its predecessors, there are six previously unreleased cuts on show, while compiler Michael Reinboth's other selections are typically diverse and on-point. Highlights of the pleasingly varied collection include DJ Nature's soft-touch, string-laden house rework of Type Sun's stunning 'Last Home', the drowsy electro-soul of Marine's 'Floor of Soul', Toshio Matsura Group's glistening jazz cover of Innerzone Orchetsra's 'At Les', the stunning electronica/jazz fusion of 'The Neverending' by7 James Holden and The Animal Spirits, and the Afro-funk-meets-Afro-Jazz flex of Shina Williams and His Afro Percussionists.
