Chicago multi-instrumentalist Dougie Stu grew up outside of Chicago and he cut his musical teeth in the city's jazz clubs and festivals as a teenager before continuing on to the University of Michigan, where he studied with Detroit jazz royalty, Robert Hurst and Geri Allen - and deepened his practice in Jazz and Contemplative Studies.</p>

<p>Now, based in California, he collaborates within many jazz, hip-hop and experimental music scenes but has embarked on his own album, the spirit of jazz in particular living large within its grooves.
The band features a long list of guests on an equally long list of instruments, but the immediately recognisable guitar stylings of Tortoise guitarist Jeff Parker - one of Stuart's biggest influences growing up in Chicago - leave an unmistakable indentation on the sound, The album's title track clocks in somewhere between the squelchy synths of Weather Report and the luxuriant Rhodes piano of mid 70s Miles Davis. 'Nostalgia' is approaching ambient, but its serene glide is very organic and tactile, while 'Scooter Bistro' uses drum & bass rhythms as a starting point for a live, drum-focused slow burner. 'Joy Ride', meanwhile, employs almost proggy, dazzling keys over bustling beat energy. The noddle-phobic might find it a little too demonstrative, but if you love jazz and yearn to hear it alive and kicking in fresh new shapes, this is likely to be right up your street.
