Description

The Near Jazz Experience - Acoustic, Pts. I & II

This is a Record Store Day exclusive which will truly appeal to die-hard vinyl fans. Recorded direct-to-disc at the Riflemaker gallery on a vintage lathe by Lewis Durham (of Kitty, Daisy & Lewis), Acoustic is a groovy, no-holds-barred live studio recording, made the way the jazz greats recorded. The sound reeks of analogue warmth played on big old instruments and documented with big old RCA microphones.

Harking back to the R&B singles of the 50s & 60s, the recording is split in two parts - but this came about naturally, organically. The fade at the end of side one is played rather than controlled, with the NJE hitting back right on cue to commence part two. This neatly fits the seven inch format - a very happy accident indeed.

The Near Jazz Experience was formed by multi-instrumentalist Terry Edwards, bassist Mark Bedford and drummer Simon Charterton in the spring of 2010. Edwards & Charterton cut their musical teeth with Norwich punk-funk band The Higsons after which Edwards formed BUtterfield 8 with ex-Madness bassman Mark Bedford. Mainstays of the NJE sound are Edwards’ distinctive guttural saxophone, Charterton’s polyrhythmic funk patterns and Bedders’ fluid but grounding basslines. The whole is a Near-Jazz Experience!
