The New Mastersounds • Plug & Play

Review by Rick Anderson
If you miss the sounds of the Meters, of vintage Northern soul, of James Brown, of 1960s jazz-funk, and of Hammond organ jazz by the likes of Jimmy Smith, and if you wish you could hear all of them at the same time, then you're sure to get a kick out of this Leeds-based quartet. To call the New Mastersounds "old school" doesn't quite do justice to their simultaneously backward-looking and forward-pushing sound, which fans of modern bands like the Charlie Hunter Quartet and Medeski, Martin & Wood will recognize immediately -- but so will those who cut their teeth on Jack McDuff and Lou Donaldson records. When guest vocalist Dionne Charles comes in (especially on the barnburning "Looking for an Answer"), the result is like an unholy cross between James Brown and Aretha Franklin; when the band slips into Afro-beat mode on "Kuna Matata" (featuring singer Troy Tuscan), the result is, strangely, more like a cross between Fela Kuti and Barry White.

Si echas de menos los sonidos de los Meters, del alma vintage del norte, de James Brown, del jazz-funk de los años 60, y del jazz de órgano Hammond de la talla de Jimmy Smith, y si lo deseas, puedes escucharlos a todos al mismo tiempo , entonces estás seguro de obtener una patada de este cuarteto basado en Leeds. Llamar al New Mastersounds "vieja escuela" no hace justicia a su sonido al mismo tiempo hacia atrás y hacia adelante, que los admiradores de bandas modernas como Charlie Hunter Quartet y Medeski, Martin & Wood reconocerán de inmediato, pero tan serán los que cortan los dientes en los registros de Jack McDuff y Lou Donaldson. Cuando la vocalista invitada Dionne Charles entra (especialmente en el barnburning "Buscando una respuesta"), el resultado es como una cruz impía entre James Brown y Aretha Franklin; cuando la banda se desliza en modo Afro-beat en "Kuna Matata" (con el cantante Troy Tuscan), el resultado es, extrañamente, más como un cruce entre Fela Kuti y Barry White.
