Jimi Tenor & Kabu Kabu - Joystone
CD Album

Jimi Tenor & Kabu Kabu


Sähkö Recordings

Released: 25th January 2010 | 12 track crossover jazz album
On Joystone the ever-inventive arranger, composer and musician as well as a captivating performer, Jimi Tenor hooks up with Kabu Kabu, a trio of West-African musicians and ex-Fela Kuti sidemen lead by Nicholas Addo Nettey. The result is an exceptionally unique and inspired album that joins the dots between dance music, Afro-beat, funk, and pop. Despite it's cosmic overtones Joystone was conceived in Tenor's tiny garage in the city of Lahti in Finland and recorded, mixed and produced entirely by Didier Selin in Helsinki. Selin is the mastermind behind the award winning 2006 album Keep Reachin' Up by Tenor's wife Nicole Willis And The Soul Investigators. Adding spice to Tenor's best work to date are the leading players in the budding Finnish jazz scene including trumpeter Jukka Eskola and saxophonist Timo Lassy. The resulting mash of Scandinavian jazz and polyrhythmic Afro-Beat and Funk is reminis-cent of legendary Euro-eccentrics Marc Moulin and Placebo. However, it is Tenor's captivating melodies, quirky humor, and genre-defying playfulness that are at the forefront of Joystone. This is the first time this CD has been made available in the UK on Tenor's native Sahko Recordings
