Part Time Heroes

Realise EP

MUMS THE WORD

Released: 30th October 2006 | 4 track acid jazz ep
Currently garnering massive support from Gilles Peterson (and scheduled for a Worldwide session in early November) The Part Time Heroes deliver their debut release on Mums The Word, although you may recognise their name from the PTH Projects 12 on Wah Wah earlier this year. Drawing comparisons to St.Germain, Cinematic Orchestra, and Zero 7 this EP is an exciting, eclectic and fresh journey over different tempos, incorporating live instrumentation, deep jazz roots, folk and organic soul nourishing goodness. Stunning opening track ‘Realise’ features the sublime vocal talents of regular heroes vocalist Jono McCleery riding a tide of widescreen jazz. The instrumental ‘Brandon Heights’ is awash with riffs, building with piano, bass, flute and brass to a culmination of merging melody lines. 2006 BBC ‘Jazz Vocalist Of The Year’ Liane Carroll guests on the swinging upbeat ‘Shadowlands’ while Lucy Kitchen sings the blues on the down-tempo, cinematic ‘All This Time’. No B-sides here †all the tracks stand up on their own as singular pieces of aural art. Reviews in Knowledge, IDJ, DJ, One Week to Live, Straight No Chaser, Notion, DMC Update and more Highly rate them, watch out for them. Gilles Peterson Love this EP! Really into the live sounding production The Nextmen
"'Realise', the lead track, is quite beautiful (the obvious parallel is Zero 7, but it's doing a disservice to suggest it sounds that similar), with exellent vocals by Jono McCleery. Elsewhere, the standout is the downtempo gem 'All This Time', sung by Lucy Kitchen. Ones to watch. 4/5"
