Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise June 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

CD Review: The New Mastersounds - Out On The Faultline

Eddie Roberts (gtr/tambourine, vcl); Simon Allen (dms/vcl); Pete Shand (bs/vcl); Joe Tatton (org/pno/clt/vcl) + Joe Cohen (ten); Papa Moli (spoken word); The Jazz Mafia Horns - Cohen (ten), Adam Theis (tmb), Mike Olmos (tpt).
A Leeds based funk band that spends most of its time touring The States, Japan and mainland Europe, the New Mastersounds achieve a hypnotic groove that make sitting still an almost impossible task when listening to the shit (good shit) they're putting down on this CD. I'm trying to imagine them live in a club like Hoochie - or any club - they'd blow up a storm! Solid B3 sounds, guitar riffs, bass below and potent rhythmic percussion coupled with '70s vocal harmonies tells you where they 're at.
Redwood Jungle is augmented by the Jazz Mafia Horns who add variety and power to the ensemble and Papa Moli gives a spokenesque lilt to Welcome to Nola - a catchy New Orleans narrative. 
The New Mastersounds - Out On The Faultline is released on Monday November 5 by One Note Records.
