Leeds soul and funk label ATA Records are proud to announce the release of Bang Bang Boogaloo by the Joe Tatton Trio. Available on 7 vinyl and Download from 29th of January, this single is a storming slice of Latin influenced soul jazz.
Laid on a foundation of driving bass and insistent percussion, the A side Bang Bang Boogaloo brings to mind the latin tinged soul jazz of Ramsey Lewis, Young Holt & Eddie Cano.Featuring driving unison figures from bass and piano laid over Congas and Timbales , this is a classic soul-jazz boogaloo aimed squarley at the more discerning dancefloor.
The B-side Sunday Shade is an altogether more laid-back affair, with the percussion of the A-side replaced by cool Grant Greenesque guitar and soft brass laid on a mid-tempo groove from bass and drums.
Since 2007 Joe Tatton has been the Organist of The New Mastersounds and has played on 7 studio albums with the quartet as well as performing with the likes of Maceo Parker and George Porter jr & Zigaboo Modeliste from The Meters. As well as performing and recording with The New Mastersounds he has also recorded 2 albums with The Haggis Horns, 1 with his own band Rodina and has supplied organ on the number one single Put you records on by Corinne Bailey Rae.
The Joe Tatton Trio comprises of Joe himself on piano with Sam Hobbs on drums and Neil Innes on double bass. Additional performances on the tunes come from The Sorcerer’s Pete Williams and Submotion Orchestra’s Danny Templeman on Percussion on Bang Bang Boogaloo and The Yorkshire Film & Television Orchestra’s Steve Parry providing brass on Sunday Shade.
