‘BACK TO BUSINESS’ – the new album, out 17 June.

Acid Jazz is very proud to announce the new album from Bangs & Talbot – ‘Back To Business’ (out 17 June) – along wit advance single‘How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)’.

Acid Jazz have a long history with Chris (who coined the term ‘acid jazz’) and Mick (founding member of the Style Council), who appeared on one of the label’s earliest and rarest singles as ‘King Truman’ back in 1988.

‘How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)’ is an instrumental cover of Marvin Gaye’s 1964 Motown classic. This reading of the song has a shuffle groove and features uber rhythms from Brand New Heavies’ guitarist Simon Bartholomew. As Bangs put it, “we wanted to put a different slant on the tune, small combo vibe with a Wurlitzer piano lead. We were thinking of getting a vocalist to sing the tune but it’s been done that way so many times.”

‘Back To Business’ is an exhilarating, contemporary fusion of timeless genres on an album that perfectly distils all these sounds to create the ultimate-sounding Acid Jazz record by two legends of the scene.
