MORE VINYL? 😎 We are happy to report that the sales of the 300 only limited vinyl edition of "Roots" look really good and we are after two months of sales at gigs and two weeks of sales in stores down to only 100 copies left worldwide (so hurry and get your copy)! This means that we are now planning for limited double vinyl reissues of the old albums as well and want to gauge the interest, but we can only take one step at a time. Which album should we start with? Check out the preliminary vinyl covers below and give us your vote in the comments! Which of the old ones deserve to go vinyl first? 🕺🕺🕺 ... See MoreSee Less

NEW AMERICAN REVIEW! In Jazz & Blues Report, Duane Verh writes:

Back before the “fusion” term was coined, “jazz-rock” was the handle for the appropriation of rock and funk rhythms by players of a discernable jazz persuasion. The Swedish sextet Beat Funktion celebrates those times, underpinning a very mid-‘60’s-early‘70’s jazz posture with era-appropriate funk rhythms, rock guitar and occasional electrified horn input. The result is an appealing set of both a fresh-sounding and throwback character.

Trumpeter Karl Olandersson is the standout soloist of the group on tasty tracks including “Big Chang”, “Lord Summerisle” and “In The Headlights”. Release date is 11/29 for digital and double-vinyl editions.
