    Summary

    Impossible Ark recognises that music is many things to many people, and believes in celebrating that diversity and delivering World class artists, concepts, performance and production to your turntable, CD player or iPod with every release. The label is the brainchild of producer Ben Lamdin (aka Nostalgia 77) and bassist Riaan Vosloo, whose highly successful collaborative work on Tru Thoughts has produced six popular albums - from the live recordings of the Nostalgia 77 Octet to studio-based explorations on an experimental jazz and funk tip - and most recently saw them joining forces with the legendary Keith and Julie Tippett for the uniquely brilliant and highly acclaimed 'Sessions' LP.

    Lamdin explains the motivation to found the label, which was borne of the vibrant and eclectic London jazz scene: "When I started the Nostalgia Octet I met so many great musicians but I was surprised that there wasn't really a recording culture. In that respect Impossible Ark was a response to a need. It's about focusing musicians' minds on creative statements, but above all it's about making some classic modern records."

    And on this stunning compilation you will find the blue-eyed country soul of Jeb Loy Nichols sitting harmoniously alongside Lamdin's hotly anticipated new Afro-funk project, the Skeleton; the other-worldly sounds of the Rhythmagic Orchestra rubbing shoulders with the highly regarded experimentalism of Examples Of Twelves; and many more treasures besides.
