Free Nelson Mandoomjazz - The Organ Grinder

SKU 25-RNR-CD-068
"Free Nelson Mandoomjazz are a three-piece band formed in Edinburgh playing an experimental blend of doom metal and free jazz.
Influenced principally by artists such as Black Sabbath, Electric Wizard, Sun Ra, Sonny Rollins, Albert Ayler and Wayne Shorter, they term their music doom jazz.
The band formed when all three members met through playing for the same blues band. Paul Archibald (drums) and Colin Stewart (bass) started discussing musical influences, and the concept of Free Nelson Mandoomjazz was born.
With the addition of Rebecca Sneddon (alto saxophone) the band recorded two EPs independently before signing to Rare Noise Records.
The band's sound has progressed with each new recording, and now with The Organ Grinder they take it up a couple of notches. While retaining the same intensely throbbing core that is at the heart of Free Nelson Mandoomjazz music, the addition of trumpeter Luc Klein and trombonist Patrick Darley on a few tracks brings new colors and textures to the proceedings. This is a bigger, bolder vision for the group without forsaking its punk-jazz essence.
Recorded at the Reid Hall in Edinburgh, The Organ Grinder presents a new and expanded vision for the sound of the band, owing as much to 11 new compositions as to the new extend lineup and to intrinsic nature of the concert hall it was recorded in, itself famed for enjoying large amounts of reverb."
