Recorded live in one take at Abbey Road Studios.

Drummer Yussef Dayes and producer Alfa Mist’s stunning 11-minute track ‘Love Is The Message’ recorded live at Abbey Road earlier this year is to be released on blue vinyl via The Vinyl Factory next month.

The recording features a super group of musicians spearheading the UK’s multi-faceted jazz scene including guitarist Mansur Brown and bassist Rocco Palladino. It was released digitally in August with a video by Joseph Dunn & Jake Whitehouse that evokes Stan Douglas’ tribute to Miles Davis’ On The Corner LP, Luanda-Kinshasa, shown at The Infinite Mix in 2016. It has since clocked almost 300,000 views on YouTube.

As the former Yussef Kamaal member Yussef Dayes says, “To be able to record this live session in the legendary Abbey Road studios was a beautiful moment. Growing up in the big smoke, we’re used to recording in basements and bedroom studios, so to get the opportunity to elevate our sounds in this space was something we couldn’t turn down!”

‘Love Is The Message’ will be pressed on single-sided azure blue vinyl, with artwork by Barka, and is released on 10th December. Pre-order a copy here and check out the artwork below.
