Sean Khan has a sterling reputation working with jazz legends like Hermeto Pascoal, but the fact that he is pairing with Pentangle chanteuse Jacqui McShee makes this single from Acid Jazz Records crucial listening. From the release’s Bandcamp site:
“Earlier this year we announced The Modern Folk & Jazz Ensemble, led by saxophonist Sean Khan. Ahead of a special appearance at the London Jazz Festival on 16 November, we are releasing their first single ‘I’ve Got A Feeling’ on all digital platforms on 11 October.
We’re very excited to be working with Sean on this project – one of our favourite albums of the past few years was Sean’s ‘Supreme Love: A Journey Through John Coltrane’. This work pays tribute to the sounds of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s folk revival, recast and reimagined in a jazz setting. ‘I’ve Got A Feeling’ sets the tone perfectly, with Sean’s arrangement and the group performance taking this Pentangle track back to it’s modal jazz origins and beyond.”
