Wah Wah 45s slip you another length of latin/jazz pressure from those Colman Brothers!
As you should already be aware, brothers Mat and Andrew Colman have been writing together for the last 7 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, Ben E. King, & 4-Hero; whilst young Andrew Colman, trumpet and flugelhorn genius, has not only held his own with Corrine Bailey Rae and Peter King, 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 pair’s third outing on Wah Wah 45s is yet another horn filled latin jazz romp, but this time with vocals!! Yes, you guessed it, it’s the Colman Sister, Sara, on those lush vocals giving ‘Sem Amor’ a fresh twist, whether it be on the hot and heavy ‘Big Band Original’, or the shuffling, more stripped down ‘Rhythm & Brass Mix’.
