Joseph BowieIn October, The Jig had a marvelous short tour in Germany. The band did gigs in Lünen, Krefeld, Hamburg and Berlin. Look at the video here.  In 2013 The Jig is definitely coming back to Germany: the first show has been confirmed. Before that, The Jig will release its second album! After the well received debut album Brooklyn Blowout recorded in New York, the band stayed in Amsterdam this time for the successor. Recordings have recently been finished in the bands own Rock Supplies studios in Amsterdam. Some fantastic musicians and friends of the band are joining on the new record: Joseph Bowie from Defunkt, the highly influental funk band from New York. And the two best saxophone players of the Netherlands: tenor sax player Boris van der Lek (ex Herman Brood Wild Romance) and alt sax player Benjamin Herman of the New Cool Collective. In January the album is finished in Studio 150 in Amsterdam: mixing will be done by Joeri Saal (Candy Dulfer, Paul Weller, Zuco103), mastering by Zlaya Hadzic, who also mastered Brooklyn Blowout.
