1000 Kings debut right here with this LP for the Jazz re:freshed imprint, and we just love bands that come out with an album as their first port of call. Thankfully, not only is this an album but it's a painfully cool one at that; the talented outfit take their own spin on jazz, giving a new meaning to the term 'free'. Opener "The Drop", is fast and relentless in its approach, and a sign of what's to come - a raucous, moody collection of high-pace jazz-dance tracks that are the reincarnation of those famous Dingwalls nights from back in the day...which seem to be on a rising trend nowadays. Wicked stuff. Recommended.
