Nostalgia 77 Octet
Released: 25th Sep, 2006
Label: Tru Thoughts
Inspired by the sounds of funk, soul, gospel and Afro as well as the classic jazz LPs of the 60s and 70s, ‘Borderlands’ captures the warmth and atmosphere of the golden age without compromising Benedic Lamdin’s natural flair for tough rhythms and irresistible hooks.
Fans of Ben’s music will be enthralled by the territories he explores with the Octet on this record, while newcomers will recognize them as luminaries of the UK jazz scene.
In December 2006, ‘Borderlands’ won Jazz Album Of The Year at the Gilles Peterson Worldwide Awards
