20th Anniversary Limited Edition on Translucent Red 3LP!
The Cinematic Orchestra have announced the reissue of their bonafide classic album Every Day, originally released 20 years ago! Spread across three LPs on translucent red vinyl replete with bonus tracks from the original recording sessions, "Oregon" and "Horizon" (feat. Niara Scarlett), as well as two tracks previously unreleased on vinyl, "Semblance" and the unearthed "Flite (Original Version)." The release features new artwork from the original designer, Openmind, and gatefold sleeve complete with Gilles Peterson's original liner notes, as well as a selection of previously unseen photographs presented on a 12" card insert, including the band at Rivoli Ballroom, London by Carl Fox and J.Swinscoe with Fontella Bass near Lake Geneva in Switzerland by Peter Williams.
Over the two decades since the album's pioneering release, it's easy to see the band's influence: jazz is all around us, with acclaimed artists from Kamasi Washington to Sons of Kemet and dozens more; London and L.A. have recently produced scenes more prolific than anyone expected. BADBADNOTGOOD have provided jazz soundtracks to high-fashion shows, and Kendrick Lamar has put the genre at the top of the charts. The way the band moved beyond its initial jazz influences into a sort of transcendental orchestration combined with the contemporary elegant electronics now used by artists like Ólafur Arnalds and Floating Points, artists they have helped forge a path for, started to really reach fruition with the release of Every Day.
Across its seven flawless, soaring tracks, the group (led by founding member J.Swinscoe alongside longtime musical collaborator Dominic Smith) takes you on a journey through classic soul, jazz, choral pieces, sinking horn riffs, throbbing harp b-lines, minimalism and more with a soul deeper than the ocean. And with guests of the calibre of Fontella Bass (the writer and performer of '60s soul masterpiece "Rescue Me" and member of free jazz renegades the Art Ensemble of Chicago) and UK music legend Roots Manuva (whose soaring, philosophical contribution to "All Things to All Men" is a firm fan favorite), you know that you're in for something special. Pitchfork agreed, giving it a 8.6 review upon release.
Since debuting with Motion in 1999, The Cinematic Orchestra have sold hundreds of thousands of albums, generated almost half a billion streams and enjoyed critical support from the likes of Pitchfork, The Guardian, New York Times, Le Monde, Resident Advisor, Fader, Crack, Rolling Stone, Gilles Peterson, Benji B, Jason Bentley and Mary Anne Hobbs. In 2007 the Ma Fleur album was recognized for its bold departure from the group's sonic traditions; in the years since, it's been continuously celebrated, with tracks like "To Build a Home" reaching huge audiences. The band have performed to larger and larger audiences and sold out the likes of London's Royal Albert Hall, Philharmonie de Paris, Rome's Auditorium Park Della and the Sydney Opera House. Coachella, Glastonbury, Fuji Rock, Montreux and Sonar have all played host to the band's much-loved live performances. They have also appeared at the Directors Guild Lifetime Achievement Awards for Stanley Kubrick and New York's Summerstage with the legendary Mahavishnu Orchestra with John McLaughlin. Their original score for The Crimson Wing, included the track "Arrival of the Birds," which featured in the Oscar-winning Stephen Hawking biopic The Theory of Everything. Their last album, To Believe, charted in the Top 20 of the UK albums chart and #1 in the album vinyl chart.
This deluxe reissue proves once again, what was known all along, that in Every Day, The Cinematic Orchestra truly created a timeless body of work.
...in the simplest terms, a flawless collection.
With Every Day, Cinematic Orchestra move beyond the electro-jazz fusion of their debut to make a record more natural, more paced, and, surprisingly, better than the justly hyped Motion....Cinematic Orchestra display a real gift in making emotional, artistic music.
