Damn, that was quick! I told you I'd still be around.
I just got hip to The Stance Brothers via A-Ko (you remember him, right?). This is new funk/soul (or as they call it, "garage jazz") done right. Someone give up the goods on how they recorded those drums! Cottdamn.
Here's a couple joints from their album Kind Soul on Ricky-Tik Records out of Finland. The first is a top-notch cover of Cannonball Adderley's "Capricon" and an original called "The Strong One" which was only available on 7".
Glad to see folks are still making records like this that have soul and don't come off as contrived or corny. The vinyl version is coming soon, but you can cop the CD/MP3's here in the meantime. Hope to hear more from them in the future.

After reading a comment left in this post I did some reading and found out this was all made by one dude...
" Ricky-Tick Records released The Stance Brothers' debut album, Kind Soul in Finland in September 2007.  Teppo "Teddy Rok" Mäkynen produced and recorded the album himself and played all the instruments."
