Wah Wah 45s return to 7-inches of pleasure, and slip you a length of latin/jazz pressure for only the most discerning of dance floors!
Brothers Mat and Andrew Colman have been writing together for the last 6 years. Their music combines traditional latin and jazz flavours with contemporary beats and the kind of horn power you’d expect from this duo of brass masters.
Mat Colman is a trombonist who can boast to having played with artists as varied as The Herbaliser, Chris Bowden, Pee Wee Ellis, Shola Ama, Ben E. King, 4-Hero, Black Grape and Suggs(!); whilst young Andrew Colman, trumpet and flugelhorn genius, has not only held his own with Corrine Bailey Rae, Peter King and Perry Hemus, but was recently voted the Young Jazz Musician of the Year! He’s also responsible for that cheeky little trumpet on Jamie Finlay’s rather excellent Wah Wah 45s release from 2005.
The Bristol dwelling pair came up with ‘El Nino’ whilst listening to an album by German composer and band leader, Peter Herbolzheimer, famous for his Rhythm Combination and Brass. The result was a dope, bluesy latin joint, with a more sultry twist on the ‘Cha Cha Mix’ and a suitably uplifting, be-bop influence on the ‘Big Band Edit’. We think you’ll agree that this really is something for us to blow our trumpet about!!
(Pardon the pun).
