CoultrainJungle Mumbo Jumbo
Coultrain is a purist. Self-described as “not for these times”, “a revivalist” and a “futurist”, his spiritual, soulful, conscious R&B owes credit to Lonnie Liston Smith, Patrice Rushen, Miles Davis and Stevie Wonder, also not of these times. For fans of Platinum Pied Pipers, Waajeed, DJ Spinna, Black Spade, Onra, and Bilal, this smooth, synth-laced and beat-rich album also recalls the ballads from the immediate post- “Purple Rain” Prince albums, updated with a progressive soul posture.
Coultrain has been featured on releases by Sureshot Symphony Solution (Nature Sounds), Hawthorne Headhunters (Plug Research), and Platinum Pied Pipers (Ubiquity), and has an unreleased full-length collaboration with Detroit legend Waajeed.
