The New Mastersounds The Nashville Session on Limited Edition Vinyl LP
Latest LP Multi-Tracked Live Onto One-Inch Tape in Single Evening Session in Front of Small Studio Audience
The New Mastersounds from their inception nearly two decades ago in Leeds, UK have always wholeheartedly embraced the "old school" label. Their sound and approach rooted deeply in those classic soul jazz, boogaloo and funk albums on labels like Blue Note and Prestige by artists like Wes Montgomery, Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff and Lou Donaldson.
Their latest LP, The Nashville Session, takes that devotion one step further by recording in the very same tradition that many of those rare groove gems were made. The 10-track collection, recorded at Welcome To 1979 studio in Nashville, was multi-tracked live onto one-inch tape in a single evening session in front of a small studio audience. Following the performance the recording was mixed down to quarter-inch stereo to later be cut direct to vinyl lacquers.
There are no guests and no overdubs, just bass, drums, guitar and organ – essentially pure New Mastersounds. Hitting the studio at the tail end of their Fall and Winter cross-country U.S. tour, the band was razor sharp, vise tight, selecting material to record from across their 16-plus year career and ten studio albums. The lone exception being their arrangement of legendary jazz guitarist Grant Green's "In The Middle."
The results from top to bottom are gritty, greasy and, most importantly, funky to the bone. The effort will be released exclusively on vinyl via a limited edition 1000-piece pressing and will not be available in any other formats upon initial release. The Nashville Session presents The New Mastersounds at their finest, utterly unadulterated by modern digital technology, full-on analog and unapologetically doing it old school.
