The Olympians debut LP, out Oct 28
The Olympians, led by vibes/keyboardist Toby Pazner, drop their debut soon on Daptone, sounds sweet.
Their early couple of singles came out back in 2008/09 on Truth and Soul: "Toby Pazner, long time keyboard/vibe player on many T&S releases, has come into his own and delivered a sweet little 45 under the band name, The Olympians. The 45 represents Pazner's musical aesthetic and features El Michels on horns and other members of the NY funk elite from bands such as The Dap Kings, Antibalas and Menahan Street Band... Recorded in his bedroom on a Tascam 388, The Olympians give us that gritty yet sweet sound that can only from NY. Pazner has been hard at work cranking out a plethora of goodness and this is just a taste of what is coming from The Olympians."
The Olympians self-titled debut album, featuring members of The Dap-Kings, Lee Fields & the Expressions, and Menahan Street Band, is out on October 28th. Pre-order now: theolympians.bandcamp.com
