Thanks to everyone who came out to see our late-night shows at the House of Blues in New Orleans during 2nd weekend of Jazzfest. We had a right rollicking good time. We are hugely grateful to all our musical guests - not only Alecia Chakour, Jans Ingber, Natalie Cressman, Jennifer Hartswick, Mike Olmos and Joe Cohen, who helped us realise our 1973/1983 theme nights - but also to the many eminent musicians who called by unannounced and sat in with us.
The new studio album (our 8th!) entitled "Out on the Faultline" was released on CD/LP/Digital on Monday November 5th 2012 on One Note Records, the band's own imprint, and also in Japan on CD & Digital through our partners P-Vine Records. The record was recorded in San Francisco and Oakland California, co-produced by Eddie Roberts & Milton Davis, and features guest performances by the Jazz Mafia Horns and Papa Mali, as well as a smattering of tasteful vocal stylings from the band.

The New Mastersounds recently went into the 106.1 studios to sit down for a quick chat and to play a few songs. The audio of the performance and interview is now up on The Corner's website, and available for everyone to listen in on. Be sure to mosey on over to the link below in order to find out which songs The New Mastersounds played and what they had to say.
"...the energy of their playing is contagious: the band lets loose and exudes a true dirty, funky vibe."
"If the late, great James Brown was still alive and looking for a backing band, you'd have to think that one act that would be near the top of his list is British Funk-Soul group the New Mastersounds, which plays that old-school, '70s Funk and Soul as if it never went out of style. "
