Elektrojazz: Rare grooves with funky latin and soulful trombonious jazz
A few years ago, I decided to start up a new musical project, and cover new musical grounds. This was the beginning of Elektrojazz, a groove jazz band where I try to capture the sound and feel of the seventies soul/funk/jazz/latin music.
I spent quite a lot of time writing a completely new repertoire for my new band, and before hitting the recording studio last year, we got to play a good bunch of live gigs where we could dig into the music.
Since we play music inspired by the seventies, and I am a big car fan, I decided to make the album into a tribute to the greatest cars of the seventies. Each track on the album is
dedicated to a specific car model, and we got car enthusiasts from around the world to put thousands of votes for their favorite cars to help us pick the right ones for our track list.
Working with the car theme on top of the musical production has been great fun, and I have received assistance from both car magazines, car dealers and car enthusiasts getting both pictures for cd cover and publicity.
The album is finally on the market, and I am pleased to be able to say that it actually turned out just the way I wanted it to. My band members play their a**** off on the recording, and we got precious help from world class trumpet player Gerard Presencer and Rune Harder Olesen on percussion.
All the best,
