The Cinematic Orchestra have announced the first ever reissue of their bonafide classic album “Every Day” originally released 20 years ago. Spread across 3 LP’s of translucent red vinyl replete with bonus tracks from the original recording sessions,‘Oregon’ and ‘Horizon (feat. Niara Scarlett)’ as well as two tracks previously unreleased on vinyl in ‘Semblance’ and the unearthed ‘Flite (Original Version)’. The release features new artwork from the original designer, Openmind, and gatefold sleeve complete with Gilles Peterson’s original liner notes. As well as a selection of previously unseen photographs presented on a 12” card insert, including the band at Rivoli Ballroom, London by Carl Fox and J.Swinscoe with Fontella Bass near Lake Geneva in Switzerland by Peter Williams.

Over the two decades since the album’s pioneering release It’s easy to see the band’s influence; jazz is all around us, with acclaimed artists from Kamasi Washington to Sons of Kemet and dozens more, London and LA have recently produced scenes more prolific than anyone expected. BADBADNOTGOOD have provided jazz soundtracks to high fashion shows, and Kendrick Lamar has put the genre at the top of the charts. The way the band moved beyond its initial jazz influences into a sort of transcendental orchestration combined with the contemporary elegant electronics now used by artists like Ólafur Arnalds and Floating Points, artists they have helped forge a path for, started to really reach fruition with the release of “Every Day”.

Across its seven flawless, soaring tracks, the group (led by founding member J.Swinscoe alongside longtime musical collaborator Dominic Smith) took you on a journey through classic soul, jazz, choral pieces, sinking horn riffs, throbbing harp b-lines, minimalism and more with a soul deeper than the ocean. And with guests of the calibre of Fontella Bass (the writer and performer of '60s soul masterpiece ‘Rescue Me’ and member of free jazz renegades the Art Ensemble of Chicago) and UK music legend Roots Manuva (whose soaring, philosophical contribution to "All Things To All Men" is a firm fan favourite), you know that you're in for something special. Pitchfork agreed, giving it a 8.6 review upon release. — (via Official website)
