Brooklyn Blowout – CD
In the spring of 2011 a new instrumental funk sound hit everybody’s ears. Amsterdam’s seven-piece outfit The Jig released its first album: Brooklyn Blowout. Recorded in the Grand Street Recording Studios in New York, the album breathes the cosmopolitan and yet warmly human atmosphere of Brooklyn, combined with true Amsterdam swagger. Elements of afrobeat, soul, rhythm ‘n’ blues and jazz are squeezed into fresh funk with a rock ‘n’ roll attitude. The band members state: The Jig is not ‘funky’, The Jig is FUNK!
