Latest release from Canadian indie label, BOOMTANG is a gentle, insinuating instrumental from FOUR80EAST – a Toronto based duo, Rob DeBoer and Tony Grace. The pair have been working together since 1997 and have since become mainstays on the Canadian contemporary jazz circuit with eight studio albums and a double live album to their credit.
The band’s new single is ‘Cookie Strut’ and without setting the music world alight, it’s a pleasing relaxing listen with an ear worm of a riff. There’s a whiff of vintage Bob James about this ‘Cookie Strut’ and it betrays Rob and Tony’s years of experience in the music biz. Out now!
