Jah Wobble & Momo are set to release a new album on the frontman’s own eponymously titled label on the 10th of May 2018. For those too young to know, Jah Wobble was the original bass player in the cult act Public Image Ltd (PiL).
“Magrhebi Jazz” was recently recorded and self produced by Wobble in London with engineers Paul Maddon and Jonas Person. Released on limited edition vinyl in conjunction with Record Store Day, the new collection is now available on CD and digitally and features 5 brand new tracks that blend jazz and North African influences to great effect.
Perhaps not entirely the music taste of most readers here, but nobody will doubt the musical genius Wobble was and is.
The album sees the legendary bass player and his band line up of Mark Layton Bennett (percussion & drums), George King (keyboards) and Sean Corby (trumpet & flugelhorn) team up with MOMO (music of Moroccan origin). The MOMO duo of Tahar Elidrissi (vocals, percussion, gimbri) and Hussan Nainia (guitars) were originally from Morocco, but they have both now settled in the UK.
Wobble’s most recent album ‘The Usual Suspects’ was released last year and features brand new recordings of some of his finest solo, Invaders Of The Heart and Public Image Limited output.
