Listen to The Escalators 2016 release ‘From The Hip’ in full
‘Boasting 5 original compositions that honour their swing, soul & reggae roots, ‘From The Hip’ also continues the band tradition of paying their respects, with 2 very cool interpretations of jazz standards.
Recorded during a peak touring period with a ‘live in the studio’ philosophy, the result is a record that breathes, feeling fresh & alive. You are ‘in the room’ with a band sharpened by time on the road.
Production is by the best ears in the business, Syd Green (South Coast) & Paul Pilsneniks (Byron Bay), with funds from an Escape ARTfest grant & money saved by cruising the van downhill in neutral while on tour.’
