Jazz-funk combo Kerbside Collection drop titletrack to new album

In anticipation of their 4th studio album Round The Corner, (written during the last 12-18 months of the cv-19 climate), Australian ‘down-under’ dusty jazz-funk and gritty rare grooves ensemble Kerbside Collection reveal the second single and titletrack “Round The Corner”. Referring to some of the ‘unknowns’ and ‘uncertainties’ around the corner post Covid-19, it’s also an uplifting groove affirmation looking forward to the positive things, and seasons to come round these kinds of unknown corners, and the incoming new year.

“Round The Corner” is a tight, dancy, uptempo, jazz funk burner featuring the group’s core trio raw and upfront. The rubbery, pulsating electric bass guitar of Lachlan Symons, the silky Fender Rhodes (and acoustic piano solo), jazzy guitar licks of Andrew Fincher, and the gritty, razor sharp grooves and percussion of drummer Paprika, are all wrapped up into this dancefloor-friendly, contemporary live jazzfunk track!

Whilst embodying some of the current resurgence of live jazz-house crossover sounds coming out of Australia (Horatio Luna, First Beige etc), “Round The Corner” also references acid music from people like Incognito, The Rebirth and Herbie Hancock’s 70’s jazz fusion years. Another sumptuous taste of what to expect on this special new record from ‘down-under’ out on modern funk and soul label Légère Recordings, which you can PRE-ORDER here.
