Get Ready / Uncle Green

A 2 track acid jazz single (8m 46s) — released April 14th 2014 on Agogo Records

The Hi-Fly Orchestra has always been a real band, right from the start in 2005. They love vintage recording techniques, all their gear crammed in one room and getting the music on tape in a jam session situation. The opening chords of "Uncle Green" already prove the point. "Get Ready" is a journey in style. Think of Lonnie Smith's immediacy and rhythmic urgency circa "Move Your Hands", the casual spirituality of Horace Silver with a hint of Lee Dorsey's style of turning rhythm & blues into soul, even Vince Guaraldi's versatile, comforting jazz sound is somewhere in "Get Ready".
