Vinyl LP pressing. 2016 release. Re-imagining cuts ranging from Italian obscurities to US house heroes, the sessions (as you might guess from the title) were about taking down whichever ideas came first. Working in a tradition of covers that's long been ingrained in jazz as well as Latin music, One Takes finds them taking that approach and running with it. It's a perfect vehicle for DaymA to bridge musical worlds in a way that's always come naturally. With an upbringing split between classical training, early jazz greats like Billie Holiday and the spiritual and musical foundations of the SanterA a religion, she's grown up seeing the bigger picture. DaymA 's versatility meant he could throw dancefloor shakers at her - like Peven Everett's 'Stuck' - along with super-rare cuts like Rafaella Renzulli's 'Asking Eyes', which he witnessed Patrick Forge deploy to maximum effect on the dancefloor at last year's Dingwalls reunion. 'Gods Of Yoruba', meanwhile, is a Horace Silver composition and 'El 456' is a Los Britos track which Gilles says "has always been a bit of a joker card for me at gigs". 'African Sunshine', finally, is by Sun R Arkestra initiate Eddie Gale. The finished EP is almost as much a tour through interesting corners of Peterson's record collection as it is through DaymA 's range as a performer. Brownswood have announced an upcoming six date European tour with Havana Cultura featuring Cuban singer DaymA Arocena. Each show will include a screening of Havana Club Rumba Sessions: La Clave, a feature-length documentary featuring DaymA that explores the roots of Cuban rumba.
