Trombonist and trumpeter respectively, Matt and Andrew Colman have a peerless CV as accompaniment to names as varied as Ben E King, 4Hero and The Herbaliser. They've slowly made a name for themselves in their own right though, winning support from Gilles Peterson amongst others, and now drop this fantastic debut on Wah Wah 45s which combines all manner of jazz, exotica and straight up funk. Opener "Mr DG" is a throwback to late-50s/early 60s swinging jazzers a la Jimmy Smith or Georgie Fame, while the rollicking rhythms of "Momo" are embellished by a distinctly Kenny Burrell-aping guitar solo. With vocal treats also included, like the languid "Some Other Wonder", this is an album both wide in scope and also beautifully rendered, and a must for jazz and funk aficionados.
Awesome digital single here from the Colman Brothers for the peerless Wah Wah 45s imprint, with the Bristolian duo turning in a noodling, languid sojourn through nu-jazz niceness. "The Chief" is an excellent jaunt filled with bubbling melodies, distant, wistful brass, shuffling percussion and wandering keys. Wah Wah label buddies Part-Time Heroes (PTH for short) turn in a dubbier remix with some killer low frequencies and lovely horn stabs!
