This album sees the excellent Jazzanova take it to the next stage with this being their first live album ‘Funkhaus Studio Sessions’. For this release Stefan Leisering and Axel Reinemer went into the studio with their 7 piece live band and singer Paul Randolph and recorded a 14 track set of tracks old and new, resulting in something that will please hardcore fans along with music lovers at large with it’s warm, soulful and deep vibes and genuine musicianship. This album has new versions of old favourites as well as some great new material. For me it’s fantastic to see a new version of the first Jazzanova track I came across called ‘Fedime’s Flight’, this was a big track for me at Cafe Mambo years ago and I’m loving this new live version. And of the new tracks ‘I Human’ is best for me, this is without a doubt one of the best tracks I have heard so far in 2012 and something that will be treasured for years to come! There are a string of live dates to accompany this album as well as a live session for BBC Radio 2 at Maida Vale.
