After breaking through with 45 “Waitin’ So Long” / “Lay It On The Line” released earlier in the year and lauded by the likes of Adrian Gibson (Freestyle Records), Dr. Bob Jones (Future Soul) and Dean Rudland (Acid Jazz / Kent / BGP), Newcastle hip cats NICK PRIDE AND THE PIMPTONES land at Record Kicks with an impressive debut album. Jazz guitarist Nick Pride formed The Pimptones in 2007, and after the release of a self-financed album and a highly acclaimed 7” single on Wack Records, the band was picked up by Record Kicks. “Midnight Feast of Jazz” is therefore the first official full-length for this group, and includes 10 tracks of phat grooves, smooth arrangements and dance-floor friendly soul jazz available on CD/Digital and limited edition LP!
With this album Nick Pride & The Pimptones prove their growing maturity and attention to stylistic detail, providing an engaging listen from start to finish. In uptempo funk monster “Come And Get It” The Pimptones immediately provide a clear demonstration of why they can be considered one of the finest horn sections in the UK, while “Gold Leader”, “Midnight Feast Of Jazz” and “Mia Sorella” take us deeper into dance-floor jazz territory, highlighting the group’s transition towards sleeker atmospheres. Stand-out vocal tracks “Brighter Day feat. Susan Hamilton” alongside "Waitin' So Long feat. Jess Roberts" and “Lay It On The Line feat. Zoe Gilby” each supply a dose of quality soul to the mix, making “Midnight Feast of Jazz" an essential album for the savvy soul-jazz dancer!
