The official release date (from Warp) for Jimi's new album Out Of Nowhere is July 17.

The album is quite different from Jimi's previous works. His massive orchestral journey with the Orchestra of the Great Theatre Lodz is an impressive example of musical diversity, blending many styles and elements from Baluji Shrivastav's sitar and tablas to some pretty dramatic vocals of the Pro Canto Choir into a highly enjoyable experience. Contributions from his wife Nicole Willis include lyrics for the single release Spell, and lead vocals on Call of the Wild.

It seems like the release of Jimi's new album "Out Of Nowhere" (Warp) might be delayed until July. The album was recorded last autumn in Poland with the Orchestra of the Great Theatre Lodz, conducted by Tadeusz Kozlowski. Playing with Jimi and the orchestra are Ilkka Mattila, Chris Dawkins, Saturo Ito, Mike Kearsey, Caroline Boaden, Mikey Wilson, Baluji Shrivastav, Wanda Pittman and of course Nicole Willis, whose solo album is also something to look forward to.

Out now is the Jimi Tenor produced album "Impostor Orchestra: Heliopause" (Sähkö/Puu-19). Here's some reviews.
