The groove lovers of the world will stand up and shout, united in the name of the funk, cause Glam Sam is back. And he’s back to stay.
Last year’s ep’s, the jazzy ”The Riviera Sessions” and the old school hip hop grooves of ”The Brooklyn Sessions”, are now followed by a selection of tracks produced by a man who found his way home. At last.
This time Glam Sam is grooving back home in Coolsville, presenting the very fresh ep ”The Coolsville Sessions”.
The man is kickin’ it off with a global soulful hip hop anthem called ”New York, London, Tokyo”, with an intense young energy and a soulful brass section that will make any dude and lady both happy and cool.
The next one has a lovely 80’s vibe to it. ”The Beats” offers a fat moog bass, and the drum rythm pays tribute to the Minneapolis funk heroes The Time. And then there is that jazzy piano. My oh my!
Then Mr Glam Sam gets hipper than hip, offering a jazzy dance groove for the well-dressed finger snappers and foot stompers. The tune is called ”Hip City”. Yes, what else?
After an evening in your favourite jazz club it’s time to take it easy and find some room to stretch out. Glam Sam is happy to provide the sounds to make you relax: ”Room to Stretch Out” and ”What’s The Matter, Sonny?” should really do the job, with their loungy, jazzy vibes.
Ok. Time to close the session for now. Let’s make some noise for the rap master. ”Face The Funk, Face The Fact” is both cool and relaxed hip hop and jazzy lounge music with that sweet electric piano and the coolest flute man since Ian Anderson’s heydays.
What else could you ask for?
He’s back for good.
