The Third Way (Hand On The Torch Vol II)
2013 marks the 20th anniversary of Us3's multi-million selling debut album Hand On The Torch. In honour of that, the new Us3 album The Third Way (Hand On The Torch Vol II) marks a return to the classic Us3 sound, with 5 of the 14 tracks containing interpolations of a number of well-known jazz standards, including Dizzy Gillespie's Manteca, Duke Ellington's It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing, and Lee Morgan's The Sidewinder.
MC duties are taken by 3 former Us3 collaborators; Akil Dasan (Schizophonic & Say What!?), KCB (Broadway & 52nd), and Tukka (Hand On The Torch). A video for the lead track Never Go Back can be seen on the Us3videos channel on YouTube (from September 16th).
