*THE BIG FIT*
An evening of Azz Shakin’, body movin’ Jazzy Funky Soul-Greasy Dance-Charged Boogaloo.
Founded in 2012 by Daniel Casares (sax and vocals) and Max Cowan (keyboards and vocals), Atta Kid's mission is to create a musical bridge between the precise chaos of East Bay Funk and the contagious lilt of the sounds of New Orleans. In February of 2017 year, Atta Kid applied this approach to trumpeter Lee Morgan’s iconic album, The Sidewinder, for two sold-out shows at the SF Jazz Center. Music for the brain and the booty. Watch and listen and get hooked.

In 1999 Eddie’s focus shifted towards Deep Funk, and hence The New Mastersounds who started out performing a mix of Eddie’s quirky Meters-inspired funk ditties and covers of Jimmy McGriff andGrant Green tunes in clubs and bars around Leeds and Manchester. Soon after, the first 7” was released on Blow it Hard Records (“One Note Brown” is now a rare collectors’ 45) they gigged at Jazz Cafe alongside Funk DJ & collector Keb Darge. This meeting proved to be a fruitful one - 3 singles and 1 album on Keb’s label Deep Funk Records earned them the dubious title ‘Best Funk Band in the World at this Moment’. 2001/2002 saw some heavy international touring for the extended 8-piece band which featured Cleve Freckleton and The Haggis Horns. Late 2002, whilst various options for a second NMS album were being considered, Eddie’s own Cooker Records teased fans with a couple of new 7” singles, as well as re-releasing the highly sought-after debut album.
Eddie’s love for 60’s Blue Note & Hard Bop, however, didn’t waver despite the media hype of the Deep Funk scene, and after a conversation with Adrian Gibson (Booker & DJ at Jazz Cafe/Messin’ Around) Eddie was commissioned to produce a Hard Bop track for the Jazz dancers to go on a ‘Messin Around’ compilation. Eddie had ulterior motives at this recording session - to record a number of ‘old-school’ tracks with re-arranging & remixing in mind. This project is calledRoughneck (a term often used to describe Eddie’s dynamic guitar style) and over the course of 2003 the multi-tracks were fed into Eddie’s creaking mainframe. “Diggin’ Around”, the first 12”, was released in February 2003 and a wave of positive responses hit Cooker’s shores. (“Pure & genuine, double bass monster. Strong heavy Jazz elements. Very, very good!” said one Espen Horne).
