Brand New Life
Recorded in two and a half days in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina, the Brand New Life's first studio effort is a great introduction to the improvisational spirit and eclectic instrumentation that bring the band's music to life. Alto and Tenor saxophones, clarinets, and flutes sing the melodies while electric guitar, upright bass, congas and drums lay down the the thumping rhythmic foundation of this recording. Each song is unique in arrangement, tone, instrumentation, and inspiration while remaining cohesive to the band's sound. The band has spent time studying and drawing from inspirations that include the ancient rhythms of Africa, the sophistication of improvised jazz, the traditions and heritage of New Orleans, the grooves of Funk, and the spirit of classical Indian music; all prevalent and homogeneous throughout their debut album.
