Soul Bossa Nostra: the title, a pun linking Quincy Jones' emblematic '60s instrumental "Soul Bossa Nova" (of Austin Powers dance-routine fame) with intimations of his don-like hegemony over black American music of the last five or six decades, gives some impression of the producer's massive, mafioso-like presence in American music culture.

Amy Winehouse may be reportedly peeved at Mark Ronson's taking too much credit for her success, and piggybacking his own solo career on that success, but she shouldn't worry overmuch about him stealing her vocal limelight: for as Record Collection brutally reveals, the über-producer of his era turns out to be an ünter-singer, his weedy vocals here failing to bring to life any song on which he takes the lead.

Mark Ronson has developed an unfortunate habit of putting his foot in it (you'd almost think he had a new album to promote). First, there was his comment, in an interview with Esquire, that he regretted dating a certain 'It' girl: "I look back on it," he lamented, "and think, 'God, did I really just step into the cliché like that?'" Said cliché was, gossips presumed, his relationship with model Daisy Lowe, whom he ran into at the GQ Men of the Year awards, to which she was accompanied by her new boyfriend, Doctor Who. Then, on Friday night, Ronson told Jools Holland that as a producer, he had taken Amy Winehouse's demos and from them "created" the hits on her album Back to Black. "[R]onson you're dead to me", Winehouse tweeted in response, "one album I write an [sic] you take half the credit – make a career out of it? don't think so BRUV". The lingo is authentic, though Ms Winehouse's account remains unverified by Twitter HQ (so may not, in fact, really be hers). It's also possible she was joking.

Any restaurant whose launch party can bring together, under one frenetically decorated roof, the King of the Zulu Nation and Amy Winehouse, has surely got to be worth a look. Shaka Zulu is an 800-seat mega-venue that styles itself a "theatre of food and drink". It's in London's Camden Market and it has a South African theme. Talk about a triple threat.
