If you don’t know about Swiss jazz outfit Okvsho, then we almost envy you for the fact that their work is about to grace your ears for the first time.
First on our radar thanks to the contagious grooves of their 2020 album Kamala’s Danz, the Zurich-based duo (trio when live) seem to be sat on some new music what with their latest ‘single’ doing the rounds. The inverted commas are in action there because Jusqu’ici tout va bien is actually three tracks, culminating in the samba (and Nike 2006 advertising campaign?) inspired song, Joga Bonito.
Anyway, we asked them to let us into their world of references and inspirations by curating our ongoing Jazz Club playlist. With some Tenderlonious cuts, some peak Miles Davis and some of their own unique sound, it’s some good listening.
