The Elder Statesman

Montreux Sunrise / Trans-Alpine Express (feat. Lord Echo)

Bastard Jazz Recordings

Released: 12th May 2014 | 2 track soul jazz single

After the dynamo sophomore release that was 2013's Curiosities, New Zealand's Lord Echo returns to Brooklyn's Bastard Jazz label, this time producing Kiwi trio The Elder Statesman comprised of twin brothers and Wellington fixtures Christopher (piano) and Daniel (double bass) Yeabsley with Lord Echo himself on percussion. On the A side, Montreux Sunrise is mellow meander through a laidback early 70s souljazz vibes, while Trans Alpine Express picks things up on the B side with a deep, spiritual piano groove, upfront doublebass, and Echo's percussion perfectly in the pocket. A timeless gem of a 7 from Bastard Jazz, releasing their own namesake for once!
