Colman Brothers

A 10 track big band album (45m 52s) — released May 30th 2011 on Wah Wah 45s

The Colman Brothers debut long-player is upon us at last! Inspired as always by 60's and 70's jazz and samba, typical of legends such as Freddie Hubbard & Horace Silver, and groups like Peter Herbolzheimer's Rhythm Combination & Brass, the Colman Brothers' eponymous debut combines the influences of this golden age with their own deft production skills, and a little vocal assistance from Colman sister, Sara. The opening track, "Mr. DG" is a fitting tribute to Dizzy Gillespie himself, and the latin flavoured "Momo" a quirky little number that's sure to raise a smile or two; whereas the rather more ominous cut "The Chief" brings to mind 70's spy soundtracks, and the sultry "Some Other Wonder" (featuring Sara Colman on vocals) and "On A Better Day" are stirring moody late night beauties. Then there are the trademark Colman dance floor monsters too of course, in the shape of "Sem Amor", "El Nino" and its younger sibling "Another Brother", plus some forward thinking remix work courtesy of the boys themselves of the latter, and the classic single "She Who Dares". A heavyweight album we're sure you'll agree!
