Joystone

A 12 track jazz-funk album (1h 3m 8s) — released May 18th 2009 on Sähkö Recordings
On Joystone Jimi Tenor teams up with Kabu Kabu, a trio of West-African musicians and ex-Fela Kuti sidemen lead by Nicholas Addo Nettey. The result is an unique and inspired album that joins the dots between dance music, Afro-beat, funk and jazz. Despite it's cosmic overtones Joystone was conceived in Tenor's tiny garage in the city of Lahti in Finland and recorded, mixed and produced entirely by Didier Selin's Timmion Studio in Helsinki. Selin is the mastermind behind the acclaimed 2006 album Keep Reachin' Up by Tenor's wife Nicole Willis And The Soul Investigators. The resulting mash of Scandinavian jazz and polyrhythmic Afro-Beat and Funk is reminiscent of Euro-eccentrics Marc Moulin and Placebo. However, it is Tenor's captivating melodies, quirky humor, and genre-defying playfulness that are at the forefront of Joystone.
