Jaz Klash • Thru The Haze

 Perhaps the best thing out of Bristol drum'n'bass since New Forms, the debut album from the collaborative trio Jaz Klash is a set of jungle jazz with a definite edge to it, courtesy of live instrumentation by noted jazz keyboardists Jacky Terrasson and Brian Auger. The drum programming by More Rockers and the Angel is superb and distinctive, while even the Angel's own vocals on two tracks come off quite well.
