Description « 74 Miles Away - Gear Change (LP) »
74 MILES AWAY is a collaboration between jazz pianist composer Pierre Anckaert, producer duo MonkeyRobot and flutist Stefan Bracaval. They’ll take you on a trip from the era of Bob James, Weather Report and Herbie Hancock, 80’s boogie to the future beat sound of today. Heavy analogue synth action and deep Moog basslines are omnipresent, keeping the lush Fender Rhodes sound in balance.
Their first eponymous album was released on Melting Pot Music (2011) and featured collaborations with AHU, Miles Bonny & Carina Andersson (4 Hero). A first single from this album, “Same Dream Again”, was released on the infamous London-based label Brownswood.
Early 2013 this Belgian combo hit the studio again which resulted in this 8-track, fully instrumental album, powered by their longtime partners at Laid Back. Eager to play and please, the band puts emphasis on their energetic live shows. And they are a real treat at the bar too, by the way.
