The Nostalgia 77 Octet Seven‘s & Eight‘s
- Words: Velanche Stewart
- Label: Tru Thoughts
Recorded live at London‘s legendary venue The Jazz Cafe, Seven‘s & Eight‘s‘s, a near full-on jazz effort-exquisitely captures the essence of a young band in bloom, led by N77 himself, Ben Lumdin. Throughout, beautiful melodic textures embody a time gone by, yet nod confidently toward the future. Should you need a little fix of electronics, the elegant 18-minute epic "The Hope Suite" is included, previously available only on vinyl. All in all, this is quite a package from quite a talented outfit.
