AVERAGE WHITE BAND – JAZZ ALLEY
AWB are widely regarded as one of the best soul and funk bands in the history of music. Though best known for their timeless instrumental mega-hit ‘Pick Up the Pieces’ the band’s strength actually lay in their consistently accomplished song-writing, stretching across several gold albums and multi- Grammy nominations.

A MUSICAL FIRST
Over 20 YEARS IN THE MAKING. For 25 years, keyboardist Bob James and bassist Nathan East have been musical collaborators. Whether it’s been side by side in the quartet, Fourplay, or studio sessions playing on others releases these two musical masters have literally spent thousands of hours playing music together. The experience and empathy of knowing each others musical language, dialect and vocabulary makes these artists as fluid as any two artists can be together.
The outcome of The New Cool is nothing short of gorgeous. In the tradition of other piano and bass recordings, James and East deliver an organic and richly complex yet simple album that makes you hit the repeat button. It glides by with ease and feels like one cohesive piece. If you have ever heard these two play live together, it will not surprise you to hear them sound as one in this recording. For those who know the music of pianist and arranger Bob James, you know the complex harmonics are executed matter of fact, as if we all know his special language the way bassist Nathan East does. A special nod to track nine called Seattle Sunrise, but personal favorites include “All Will Be Revealed”, “Waltz For Judy” and “Ghost of a Chance” and “Turbulence”.
