David Hanke’s Renegades Of Jazz project has been relatively successfully in achieving its initial aims, namely “bringing the jazz back to the dancefloor”. After a three-year hiatus Hanke and company are back with a new album, “Nevertheless” – a funk-fuelled romp through bustling breakbeats, elastic double bass, fuzzy Stax style horns, jammed out piano lines and groovy guitar riffs. Hanke has roped in a number of guest vocalists and collaborators to put their stamp on the set, with stellar contributions from rapper Donnie Numeric (the hip-hop/jazz/funk fusion of “Hot Wired”), soul singer Clair Fallows (see the punchy floor-rocker “Light Me Up”) and Afrika Fuentes (check the tropical funk brilliance of “Don’t Break My Love”).
