19.11.2019 The Jazz Defenders – Scheming
Very excited to have signed The Jazz Defenders to our label Haggis Records. Their debut LP “Scheming” is available to pre-order now on vinyl, cd and digital at https://thejazzdefenders.bandcamp.com/album/scheming
Album releases on the 6th December
The Jazz defenders are a group borne out of a deep love for Blue Note Records – specifically the hard bop recordings of Horace Silver, Hank Mobley, Lee Morgan and Art Blakey. Those records were highly regarded for a reason – catchy horn lines and incredible musicianship combined with Rudy Van Gelder’s engineering skills mean they will forever be regarded as classics of the genre. The Jazz Defenders are a group that would ‘defend’ the legacy of those recordings whilst creating its own original identity and distinctive flair. The music they produce together is a modern soul jazz slant on this classic Hard Bop, effortlessly channelling the spirit of the golden Blue Note era of Jazz.
