Hot Funky News For You!
Two new albums out now
‘A LITTLE BOOK OF JAZZ’ (Pedigree Cuts) and ‘THE HANG’ (RSB Records) – a classic Jazz album to celebrate the 81st birthday of Blue Note Records and an all-out Jazz Funk album recorded live at Masterlink Studio with arguably the most vibrant Funkestra six piece to date.
There will only EVER be 50 copies of ‘THE HANG’ and I will hand-number each copy – feel free to pick your favorite our lucky number so you’ll end up with 7/50 for example. Feel free to order and pick your number – I’ll send the CD to you plus a free download code from Bandcamp to get your favorite digital format. Just ping me an email.
‘A LITTLE BOOK OF JAZZ’ is nodding towards the titanic Blue Note Records and its influence on my musical upbringing. There is only a limited amount of CDs – order them at BANDCAMP.
More than ever your support would be most appreciated.
Oh yeah! ‘The Hang’ – our 12th full blown album – this collection of 11 songs has finally dropped on RSB Records, i.e. available for you to listen digitally in one go! There is a super-limited amount of eco friendly CD packages incl. 16 page booklet left – feel free to get in touch and order from me.
Jade Danielle Williams – aka Jade Like the Stone – announces a Kickstarter campaign to help launch her album collaboration with feted ‘studio house band’ Redtenbacher’s Funkestra.
Vocalist Georgia Van Etten and Redtenbacher’s Funkestra release ‘Oh Mother (Live at Masterlink) on RSB Records
Soulful and strikingly authentic Australian songstress, Georgia van Etten, joins an all-star lineup of top UK session players to perform her heart wrenching song ‘Oh Mother’ for a 100% Live Masterlink Session with Redtenbacher’s Funkestra, the studio house band.
I’m delighted to announce the release of ‘A Little Book Of Jazz’ on Pedigree Cuts. A special thanks to executive producer Elliot Ireland to believe in this collection of songs. The album title refers to ‘The Real Book 5th Edition’ – which was an illegal fake book – a compilation of lead sheets of jazz standards, created by Berklee College of Music students in the 1970s. It has become the standard reference work for generations of jazz players and has influenced the performance and composition repertoire in the Jazz circles ever since. Including me – a former Berklee College of Music student – firmly falling into the spell of this real book – sold under the counter in Boston, MA.
