The New MastersoundsAs their live shows continue to charm audiences in USA, Japan and Europe, The New Mastersounds have built on their own impressive musical heritage and produced a soulful, funk-drenched eighth studio album – real instruments, recorded this time in downtown San Francisco.

The record opens with a classic slice of organ funk (think The Meters, but edgier), quickly followed up with other seriously catchy syncopated gems full of solos, inventive arrangements and gang vocals. There’s a nod in the direction of jazz-house (à la Saint Germaine), a rolling-piano-&-spoken-word homage to New Orleans (where the band has performed for the past 6 consecutive years), then a massive horn track before the tone of the album gradually shifts to close out with a psychedelic Hammond-rock sound reminiscent of Brian Auger. Eddie Roberts’ vintage production delivers warm soulful bass, choppy drums, funky organ & piano, and Eddie’s signature roughneck jazz guitar throughout.

“Out On The Faultline” is another corker of an album from the stalwarts of the global funk and soul-jazz movement. Also available on limited edition LP.
