Music Soup is celebrating 10 years of music with the release of their project
"Cut to the Chase"
from Chicken Coup / Summit Records.
Evgenia Karlafti & Nestor Dimopoulos joined by the drummer Vangelis Kotzabasis , present nine original tunes,
that showcase the unique sound of the band.
"The first time I listened to these tracks, I was driving around the streets of Athens, stuck in traffic; the last time, I was commuting in Melbourne. Two different cities, two different daily routines, same feeling of heart-warming joy in listening to this collection of groove-oriented tunes. Eyes closed, head bobbing, toe tapping, I find myself unable to stand still to the hard-swinging, high-energy blend of post-bop and deep funk that has become Music Soup’s trademark. Immersed to their world, I forget, momentarily, which part of the planet I am - which is precisely the point..." Nikos Fotakis (liner notes)
