NEWS: Elektrojazz New York Project

Elektrojazz’s love is redirected (301) from classic cars to New York, the capital of cities. In the search for a legit reason to spend time in this amazing city, we decided to make a musical tribute to it, featuring amazing undercover up-and-coming NYC artists. And so the search began, both for amazing undercover up-and-coming NYC artists and reasonably priced Airbnb apartments.

We went to New York in 2016 with a mission: to capture the sound, feel and smell of the city. With our luggage filled with half songs, half appointments, half plans and full commitment, we arrived at JFK Airport late at night. Only a few hours later, we landed in our Harlem Airbnb flat, and tucked our jet lag into bed.

During our hectic days in town, we went around Manhattan to do on-location recordings of street artists, and capture the soul of New York. Co-writing sessions with talented NYC artists in our home-away-from-home Harlem flat led to an intense studio session in Brooklyn. This is the result of our struggles. We could think of no better way to present it than plotting all the songs onto a map of New York, and wrapping it in an app for tablets and smartphones. Although our playlist may look like a real subway line, we would be utterly surprised if you find it in real life. But nevertheless, hop on board our MTA train (Multi-Track Audio) on a sonic journey from downtown Manhattan to the north of Harlem.

The result – our second album – is coming soon and will appear as a app for smartphones and tablets, as well as on all major streaming services. Still like shiny plastic discs? We will satisfy your need for a physical cd too.

PREVIOUS PROJECT: Elektrojazz “Cars” – the perfect album for the perfect road trip.

Elektrojazz Cars cd cover

Why produce a groove jazz album inspired by the greatest cars of the seventies? If you are a jazz musician and car lover based in Denmark (a little Nordic country with 180 percent car penalty taxes, applied after 25% VAT), it’s clearly the most logical thing to do. If we can not own the cars, at least we can dedicate songs to them!

Combining rare grooves with funky Latin and soulful jazz, our mission has been to create the perfect album for the perfect road trip – whether you’re driving one of our seventies inspirations or simply using your imagination.

See all the cars on our the track list, is your favorite in there?

Elektrojazz is a group made up of some of the most groovy Danish musicians available. We play groovy jazz evoking the sound of the seventies, so naturally, we’ve made cars from this period our focus.

Elektrojazz is:
Anders Larson – trombone & universal mastermind
Anders Rose – Fender Rhodes & VP of high-octane harmonies
Matthias Petri – electric bass & musical turbo charger
Andreas Svendsen – drums & general groove manager

Special guests:
Gerard Presencer – three-valve trumpet
Rune Harder Olesen – road legal percussion
Roland CompuRythm CR-78 – extra analog drum box
