Review

German guitarist, bandleader and producer JJ Whitefield has been spearheading several musical sub-genres over the last two decades. His bands Poets of Rhythm, Whitefield Brothers and Karl Hector & The Malcouns are almost legendary to fans worldwide. He has been releasing influencial albums on Ninja Tune, Mo’Wax, Daptone, Strut, Stones Throw and Now-Again and is probably one of the most respected German undergound musicians. Now he is reaching new levels of nastiness with his Kraut-Jazz debut for Kryptox music. The new german label that has been created to show what´s happening in the growing german Neo-Jazz underground. A label collaboration between Gomma and K7 Records “Brother all alone” is Whitefield´s first album under his own name. Recorded in Berlin, Munich and Nairobi with some of the most interesting heads of the German Neo-Jazz-Kraut scene and mixed by Malcolm Catto of The Heliocentrics. Whitefield is an innovator in the experimental kraut, deep funk, neo jazz scene. An obsessed record collector since his teenage years, Whitefield´s productions aim for a timeless quality and are often regarded on par with the classics they´re influenced by.
