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.
With much excitement I’m finally in the position to announce that ‘Big FUNK Band’ is coming your way, following on from the super-well received ‘The Hang’ which has accumulated over 450k+ Spotify streams since the 2020 release and spending numerous weeks being number #1 in the Funk category of the Roots Music Report (RMR).
Redtenbacher’s Funkestra release ‘Cool Beans’ ft. Mike Outram (gtr) and Paul Jordanous (trp) on RSB Records
When Redtenbacher’s Funkestra gigs were still possible ‘Cool Beans’ was always an audience favorite. This stomping wall-to-wall funk piece with a larger-than-life bass line certainly justifies to be on the ‘Big FUNK Band’ album. The rhythm section is extended by a big band horn section and a live string section. The featured soloists are guitar wizard Mike Outram and Paul Jordanous on trumpet (who also co-wrote the horn arrangement with Stefan).
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.
