Smoke Notes

This perfect companion album to 2005's Hiatus On The Horizon, sees Matt Chicoine (aka. Recloose) assembling a band of some of Wellington's best and most respected musos, including Vocalist Lisa Tomlins, Mike Fabulous (Black Seeds) on Bass, acclaimed drummer Riki Gooch (TrinityRoots) as well as members of Opensouls, Solaa and Rhombus.
After touring much of 2006 with the Recloose band - including a highly successful jaunt to Europe, Chicoine quite rightly wanted to document the music as played by this band - and what better way to capture them, than in full flight, at the San Francisco Bathhouse in front of a very receptive hometown audience? The band puts their own organic spin on some of the Recloose album material, as well as a couple of well chosen covers - including a very funky version of Gil Scott-Heron's 'Racetrack In France'. Last year's single 'Dust' - featuring Fat Freddy's Dallas - gets a roar of recognition from from the approving audience. Extended funk jams like closer 'Turkish Delight', show off the skills of the musicians involved – Tyna Keelan's (of Tyna & JB) blazing fretwork throughout the album deserving special mention.
The first release for his own new imprint "Fingertips", Backwards And Sidewards is an extremely well mixed, classy live album - an increasingly popular move with local bands of this ilk as seen with last year's releases from Deva Mahal and the excellent Tropical Downbeat Orchestra. A perfect blend of Funk, R&B and Electronica, this set will be a refreshing change for fans who associate the Recloose name with DJ based music production.
