Release Notes
Recorded at Le Triptyque, Paris on October 11th 2005 where Eddie was promoting the French release of his first Roughneck album. Featuring Malcolm Strachan (Haggis Horns, Mark Ronson, Corinne Bailey Rae) on trumpet and flugelhorn. review: The term "nu-jazz" shows that the more things change, the more they stay the same. "Roughneck Live in Paris" might be nu-jazz, but it still has plenty of the old, with its blend of 1990s-style jamming and sleek '60s soul jazz. As lead guitarist for New Mastersounds, Eddie Roberts regularly spins out one fresh guitar riff after the next. On this jazzier outing, keeping the deep grooves rolling never interferes with the polished soloing, while the backing band of trumpet, bass, drums and piano chill out the sound with their savvy, stable approach. Roberts' guitar work makes intricate bop and wide-open modal jazz sound effortless. Whether the future of jazz is in loose, riffing bands like this one or not, a refurbished cool positively erupts in their playful warmth and forward drive. (MICHAEL PRONKO Japan times)
