The new GoGo Penguin has arrived! The iconoclastic Mancunian combo (piano, bass, drums, and electronic sounds) was first noticed by Blue Note, who are forever on the lookout for “jazz-ish” groups to expand their audience; however, their dream was not to emerge unscathed. During the pandemic, the group separated from the great house to join XXIM Records, one of Sony Masterworks’ labels and this major company’s classical/jazz stable. Another change: the departure (amicably, it is said) of drummer, Rob Turner.


To replace him, the pianist Chris Illingworth and bassist Nick Blacka turned to Jon Scott, who played with the Kairos 4tet and Mulatu Astatke, aka the godfather of ethio-jazz. We do end up finding a little less jazz on this sixth album, however. It instead offers short pieces that veer towards a more ambient and contemplative sound (the comforting Glimmerings opening), and cinema soundtracks, i.e., You're Stronger Than You Think , culminating with Parasite, an instrumental medley that gets carried away. It plays like a lounge jam session while the children sleep soundly upstairs. Elegant and cinematic, the GoGo Penguins’ music has, despite some turmoil, lost nothing of its feel-good nature. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz
