From First Word Records... "We're proud to announce the debut album from 14-piece spiritual jazz ensemble Teotima.

Formed by guitarist-composer Greg Sanders, the album blends grooves from West Africa, Cuba and Brazil, adding the sensibility of classic American soul and funk. As an intrinsically live project, all the individual band members were key to the project and their improvisation is a central part of the album. 

Recorded live at London's Fishmarket Studios under the watchful eye of engineer Ben 'Nostalgia 77' Lamdin, the record achieves a synchronicity that only this kind of old-fashioned approach can produce.

You can check out the album teaser below, and the video for lead-track 'Orange Lamps' (as debuted on Okay Player affiliate site 'Revive') here.

Band-leader Greg has also put together an influences mix over at our Mixcloud page, you can find that here. Most importantly you can listen to, and buy the album right here. It's available on vinyl, CD and download. Londoners can see what is sure to be a rare live show at the stunning Wilton's Music Hall on December 10th. Details of that are here."
