Loads of sweet keyboards here – handled by Roman Andren, who's at the head of a very soulful group! Andren plays Fender Rhodes, and a bit of acoustic piano too – amidst other instrumentation that includes vibes, guitar, and lots of percussion – served up with strong influences from older Brazilian rhythms, European jazz, and a touch of American soul – all wrapped up warmly with a really great sound for a contemporary record like this!
In the notes, Andren claims to be going for the jazzy sound of the 60s and 70s – and he's definitely got that right, but also brings a bit of a contemporary vibe into play too – not with too many beats, but just in the way he manages to tune his grooves towards the 21st Century – not just copping older modes, but reinventing them with his own soulful spirit.
