[ALLSCHOOL] *** Laid Back Compilation - All School Favor Vol.1 *** [MUSIC]

First part of the “All School Flavor Compilation" from Laid Back. Available on CD and digital. With some features from 74 Miles Away, Lefto, Cris prolific, 40 Winks and more. 

“Since 2002, Laid Back connects creative minds from all over the world to help develop their art and get the word out. In every project we involve our audience by documenting every step of the process and generate interaction. ”

74 Miles Away is a collaboration of Pierre Anckaert Trio and Monkey Robot. The album itself is very soulful and laid back, the first 4 songs being contemporary jazz/fusion compositions and the other 4 being sweet lo-fi/electronic jazzy tracks. In addition, Monkey Robot has also invited artists such as Miles Bonny,  AHU, and Carina Andersson which, as we know, may only lead to good stuff.

Cannonball Adderley - 74 Miles Away

 

The best track from Cannonball Adderley’s album “74 Miles Away” 1967.

R&B finds a place in Belgium.

74 Miles Away is a collaborative project comprised of Belgian pianist Pierre Anckaert and producers MonkeyRobot. The track above, “Same Dream Again,” features vocals by Miles Bonny and AHU (formally known as Dolly), the same artist Flying Lotus featured on his breakthrough record ”RobertaFlack.” Fans of jazzy Fender Rhodes and that wailful R&B aesthetic will take pleasure in this project’s focused sound.

Sounds like: Jazzy Jeff, D’Angelo, Flying Lotus, Common, Roy Ayers

74 Miles Away - Same Dream Again (feat AHU & Miles Bonny)

http://74milesaway.com/

Numa excelente fusão entre electrónica e jazz, o pianista Pierre Anckaert e os MonkeyRobot demonstram que apenas os duros de ouvido se cingem a um estilo musical apenas e que o futuro reserva muita música ainda por descobrir. Não quero com isto afirmar que a música mais purista não tenha o seu interesse até porque, nos tempos que correm, creio ser mais difícil limitar-se a um leque reduzido de influências, mas a verdade é que se torna muito agradável descobrir temas como este que, com uma amálgama de diferentes raízes, fundem na perfeição algo único e belo.

74 Miles Away - Gear Change (2013)

Belgian quartet 74 Miles Away combine the talents of a jazz pianist, production duo and flautist to create a heady mix of old and new that taps into everything that makes you feel good about jazz, soul and beats. Having released on Cologne’s MPM and London’s Brownswood, their latest release comes with the support of Brussels’ Laid Back, and sees the quartet delve deep into their influences and current interests. Across eight tracks, Gear Change covers dedications to greats like Bob James and Weather Report, ’80s boogie and modern beats without ever sounding clichéd. The title cut is a particularly funky highlight, sure to perk up anybody’s day.

Miles Bonny - Lumberjack Soul

One of the most incredible discover during these years is without doubt Miles Bonny. Kansas City producer/trumpeter/singer is the kind of artist that is able to touch your senses with his original and alternative skills. Hanging in the balance between jazz vibes and neo-soul mellow tones, Miles earned his stripes making pretty good music and several collaborations with young talented producers from the black music scene.

In 2011 Miles Bonny released his must have masterpiece entitled Lumberjack Soul under the indie label Melting Pot Music Records based in Cologne,Germany, recruiting sophisticated and talented beatmakers like: Suff Daddy (that appeared on Stay Mellow and The Remix Session) and 74 Miles Away to name a few.

The perfect blend between jazz,soul and hip hop guarantee an high level of quality, we are sure that this gem will engage your mind & soul,so don’t sleep
