Anyone who likes instrumental, organ-driven funky jazz (or jazzy funk), like that of Medeski, Martin and Wood for example, should pay attention now. The Hit is the debut album by WRD Trio: acclaimed musicians Robert Walter (The Greyboy Allstars) on Hammond B3 Organ, Eddie Roberts (The New Mastersounds) on electric guitar, and Adam Deitch (Lettuce) on drums – W.R.D. does not stand for ‘weird’ but are the first letters of the surnames of those involved (their music is also not weird, but quite good). These eleven raw, natural songs are the result of refined musical synchronicity and reveling in vintage straight-to-tape recording techniques. The ‘supergroup’ embraced the immediacy of metamorphosing short demo songs into consummate arrangements with no headphones, minimal overdubs, and live recording. From the classic sound to the cinematic cover art, it all fits – authentic and groovy. The album is out now digitally, on CD and vinyl LP through Color Red Music.
