His success internationally enabled Chris Bangs to set up his own studio and production company, Thin Air. His talents were soon spotted outside of the acid jazz scene with Paul Weller utilising Chris’s production skills. This liaison led to a partnership with Weller’s former Style Council-er Mick Talbot as Soundscape UK – one of a whole range of projects marked by the Bangs stamp that have secured commercial and critical acclaim from the USA, Japan, Europe and Australia.
Out on the streets in the UK on may 15th 2000 Uptown Groove is the long awaited new album from Soundscape UK.
Recorded in London and New York City summer 1999 – spring 2000, Uptown Groove takes a whole new angle at contemporary jazz funk mixing the best elements of smooth jazz with funky soul beats and the vocal talents of Opal recently with Urban Species and the big cheese allstars on three original tunes and a cool cover of Terri Wells Classic “you make it heaven”.
The New Groove takes in influences from Urban Groove, Jazz Funk and Smooth Jazz to create a contemporary soundscape with a whole flavour of it’s own and features Mick Talbot, Keyboard Ace from Yada Yada and The Style Council – Nigel Price, guitarist from The Quiet Boys and Sambada plus special guests Lisa Grahame on Sax, Dave Priseman of Flavournauts on Trumpet, Cyril McCammon from Push on Fender Rhodes and Martin Pyne on vibes.
Produced and arranged by DJ Chris Bangs this album is going to make a lot of new friends for SoundscapeUK and the UK Jazz scene in general…
