Chris Bangs – ‘Firebird’



Veteran acid jazz pioneer, producer and DJ Chris Bangs is set to release a new solo album exploring his love for all things jazz and Latin.

It follows his explosive 7” single ‘Samba Do Sueno / Soccer Samba’ (the A-side of which opens the LP), and his soul-jazz, mod-club adventure with Mick Talbot ‘Back To Business’ earlier this year.

The title track ‘Firebird’ is out now, having already featured as track of the week on JazzFM!

Chris says ‘The idea of the album was to make a whole bunch of jazz dance tracks I would have gladly had in my record boxes back in the Days of Cock Happy, Doo at The Zoo, Bournemouth Weekenders, etc. I spent a lot of time finding some exceptional musicians and tracking down and hooking up again with some of the finest musicians I have worked with over my recording career.’

A compendium of dance-floor fillers, the resultant album ranks among the best in his eclectic and prolific career. Pre-order now.
