New Mastersounds in NOLA
Leeds’ New Mastersounds spent the last week in New Orleans, playing a variety of shows throughout the Big Easy. Last week, the group performed at The Blue Nile following one of the venue’s super jam, where The Stanton Moore Trio expanded to include The New Mastersounds’ Eddie Roberts and Pete Shand, as well as Big Sam, Topaz, Cheme, Jonathan Batiste and Trombone Shorty, among others. According to the band, the event was ‘jolly good fun, this JazzFest business.’ This past Saturday The New Mastersounds also performed at the House of Blues, where Sam Kininger, Adam Deitch and Nigel Hall all took the stage with the group during the wee hours. The New Mastersounds next scheduled performance will take place across the pond at Leeds’ Sela Bar this Friday, which guest Dionne Charles performing with the group. Charles is a featured guest on the group’s forthcoming studio release.
