Description

Rush Hour Store Record of the week W34:

On heavy rotation at Rush Hour right now: ‘Gone to the Cats’, the new album by multi-talented UK jazz pianist, keyboardist, arranger and composer Greg Foat for the Norwegian Jazzagression imprint.

Recorded in a small cabin in snowy Norway in the winter of 2020 with a Finnish rhythm section consisting of Aleksi Heinola on drums and Teemu Åkerblom on bass, the three conjure up six golden jazzfunk grooves in the spirit of Les McCann’s 1972 masterpiece ‘Layers’ and Galt MacDermot, David McCallum and David Axelrod’s finest soundtrack work with some Bob James and Cortex thrown in for good measure, yet with a slightly more modern feel.

The Finnish foundation of drum and bass is rock solid and funky from A to Z, with Foat providing a buttery flavor on Moog and Fender Rhodes. It’s a proven yet still highly addictive recipe that works just as good in ‘21 as it did half a century ago. (RO)

Improvised beat-laden jazzy soundtrack jams in this UK meets Finland rendezvous

Our latest recording features renowned UK pianist Greg Foat with a Finnish rhythm section consisting of Jazzaggression profiles Aleksi Heinola on drums and Teemu Åkerblom on bass.

Recorded in a small cabin in snowy pre-covid Norway in the winter of 2020. These 8 atmospheric beat-laden instrumentals are ultimately a tribute to cats. The trio built up an improvised, spontaneous jam formula, featuring a jazzy backbone with Greg’s solos and harmonics laid out utilizing the new Moog grandmother accompanied by Fender Rhodes and the Roland JX-8P synthesizer.

If you are a fan of seventies soundtracks and library music this is a must!
The album comes with a double-sided colour insert and digital download.
