Fredfades is making his name in hip-hop circles worldwide as one of the most genuinely jazzy producers around. So what happens when he joins up with the gifted jazz trumpeter Kristoffer Eikrem for a full LP release? Needless to say, the project lives up to its title "Jazz Cats". The two enlist several other jazz musicians on this innovative LP, as well as rappers like Ivan Ave. Somehow the many voices and hands involved all fit smoothly into the format, as Fred's unique beat aesthetics and Eikrem's silky melodies solidly combine in an organic sounding piece.
The first 100 buyers of the LP will be the lucky owners of a bonus 7" containing instrumental versions of the LP's rap tunes, as well as custom drink coasters for whatever beverage you would like to consume while listening to these talented Jazz Cats.
