Beyond The Rains is made in the best traditions of the long lost art of album making. With its affinity with the past, a lust for the future and plenty of natural soul, Mitchell & Dewbury have created a modern classic. It's an essential blend of soul, jazz, funk and Latin united by a positive spirit. Russ Dewbury is the sole power behind the Jazz Rooms, Britain's longest running club session, attracting aficionados from the farthest corners of the earth with its unique blend of deep jazz, cosmic soul and Afro-Latin rhythms mixed together with the current musical mores. Ben Mitchell is a producer, remixer and DJ playing worldwide. He records under the guise of Sao Benitez, also remixing Masters At Work, Seu Jorge Jimi Hendrix, and Hammond legend Jimmy Smith. This album features an International line up including Terry Callier, Navasha Daya and James Collins of Baltimore soul-jazz outfit Fertile Ground, cult Philadelphian-born jazz flautist Lawrence Jones; vocalists Billie Godfrey and Lizzie Rendall, bass player Jeff'The Funk'Walker, pianist Mark Edwards, Nigerian saxophonist Bukky Leo (one-time student of Fela Kuti), Brazils Drumagick and Germanys Hypnosis & Marc Frank.
