The burning Afro-funk at the heart of -Walk in These Shoes- reveals the quartet at full rhythm burn, even with the four-part harmonies adding a breezy, humid element to the mix. Roberts guitar break is one of the best on any New Mastersounds studio effort. Kenny takes her own lead vocal break on the album-closing jazzer -Up in the Air,- with spacy psychedelic soul grooves from the New Mastersounds.
The New Mastersounds are a British four-piece jazz fusion and bluesy funk band from Leeds, England. Over the last 16 years, they have issued ten studio albums, two live dates, two remix collections, and a compilation album. Peter Wermelinger – deejay, collector, and author of the crate-diggers' bible The Funky & Groovy Music Lexicon – placed the 2001 New Mastersounds track "Turn This Thing Around" in his all-time top-10 tunes, along with Eddie Harris, Funkadelic, and Herbie Hancock.
Unless you’re a connoisseur of modern-day funk and soul you likely haven’t heard of the New Mastersounds. That’s a shame, because for more than a decade this Leeds-based outfit has been churning out some of the tightest, most hip-shaking grooves around. The quartet is currently touring the United States and recording their upcoming album here (Tornillo, Texas to be precise) - a first for them. In another change, the band will be adding vocals to their previously instrumental attack.
