Fish In The Sea

A 2 track soul jazz single (6m 38s) — released February 7th 2011 on Freestyle Records

Freestyle Records is very proud to announce our first release of 2011, a cracking, rhythm & blues tinged 45 single, suitably from brand new signing: Frootful - the name that guitarist Nick Radford works under, which also features the production and instrumental skills of his regular partner in crime, Adam Gibbons aka Lack Of Afro! Fish In The Sea has its roots stuck in the early 60s transition from R&B to soul, and features the wonderful Angeline Morrison on vocals. The hand-clapping, foot-stomping groove is made all the heavier with some solid horn arrangements by Adam. The flipside is an instrumental version that is totally exclusive to this 45, and features Nick's tasteful guitar soloing and some sweet flute which simply swings - beautifully. Taken from the forthcoming album: Colours (FSRCD/LP084) the Frootful project bridges the gap between past and present, acknowledging influences, while reflecting the creative process of looking back to move forward. Such influences include 60s soul jazz, latin, ska and R&B.
