Format: CD
Release date: 01.12.2015
Genre: Jazz

The project is masterminded by trumpet player Nick Garbett (The Vampires, The Strides) and co-produced by Paulie Bromley (Bobby Alu, George, The Beautiful Girls) and Declan Kelly (DK & the Rising Sun, Katie Noonan, Diesel 'n' Dub) at Bromley's Tanuki Lounge Studios in Brisbane. The album features a slew of heavyweight musicians helping to flesh out Garbett's compositions, resulting in a dedicated meditation on the instrumental style pioneered by old world Jamaican masters such as Sly and Robbie, Tommy McCook and The Skatalites just to name a few. It's one of those records that sounds killer at all volumes; your environment will become badass no matter what the setting. Enjoy!
