Instrumental funk outfit The Jig will release its new album Aargh! with a full concert in Sugar Factory on saturday 20th of april. On Aargh! the 7-piece band from Amsterdam has deepened its original funksound which contains hints of soul, afro, jazz and rock & roll. Two years after the successful album Brooklyn Blowout, which was recorded in New York, The Jig retreated to its home ground Rock Supplies in Amsterdam’s Baarsjes neighbourhood to record fresh and tasty new material in a semi-live setting. The eleven tracks on Aargh! breathe warmth, spontaneity, a hint of craziness and are highly danceable. Some of the bands musical friends dropped by: trombonist and singer Joseph Bowie (Defunkt), tenor-tough-guy Boris van der Lek and Holland’s foremost jazz musician: alto saxophonist Benjamin Herman. The album was mixed in the internationally renowned Studio 150 by Joeri Saal and mastered by Zlaya Hadzich. The artwork is by Stefan Glerum.
