The New Mastersounds
Brudenell Social Club, Leeds.
The New Mastersounds have been delighting audiences with their infectious brand of funky soul-jazz since they formed in Leeds, UK, in 1999. Though they have collaborated over the years with such musical luminaries as Maceo Parker, Fred Wesley, Corinne Bailey Rae, Art Neville, Quantic, and Lou Donaldson, they are at their best on stage as a tightly-packed quartet – bass, drums, guitar and Hammond organ - firing scorching funk grooves off each other and feeding off the energy of the joyful dancers in the front row.
The band recently finished recording their 12th studio album just outside Denver, Colorado, which is due for release late 2017.
