After breaking through with 45 Waitin' So Long / Lay It On The Line released earlier in the year, Newcastle hip cats Nick Pride And The Pimptones land at Record Kicks with an impressive debut album. Jazz guitarist Nick Pride formed The Pimptones in 2007, and after the release of a self-financed album and a highly acclaimed 7" single on Wack Records, the band was picked up by Record Kicks. Midnight Feast of Jazz is therefore the first official full-length for this group, and includes 10 tracks of phat grooves, smooth arrangements and dance-floor friendly soul-jazz. With this album Nick Pride & The Pimptones prove their growing maturity and attention to stylistic detail, providing an engaging listen from start to finish.

Waitin So Long


Lay It On The Line feat. Zoe Gilby


sneak preview of the brand new album

Press Release :
After breaking through with 45 "Waitin' So Long" / "Lay It On The Line" released earlier in the year and lauded by the likes of Adrian Gibson (Freestyle Records), Dr. Bob Jones (Future Soul) and Dean Rudland (Acid Jazz / Kent / BGP), Newcastle hip cats NICK PRIDE AND THE PIMPTONES land at Record Kicks with an impressive debut album. Jazz guitarist Nick Pride formed The Pimptones in 2007, and after the release of a self-financed album and a highly acclaimed 7" single on Wack Records, the band was picked up by Record Kicks. "Midnight Feast of Jazz" is therefore the first official full-length for this group, and includes 10 tracks of phat grooves, smooth arrangements and dance-floor friendly soul-jazz.

With this album Nick Pride & The Pimptones prove their growing maturity and attention to stylistic detail, providing an engaging listen from start to finish. In uptempo funk monster "Come And Get It" The Pimptones immediately provide a clear demonstration of why they can be considered one of the finest horn sections in the UK, while "Gold Leader", "Midnight Feast Of Jazz" and "Mia Sorella" take us deeper into dance-floor jazz territory, highlighting the group's transition towards sleeker atmospheres. Stand-out vocal tracks "Brighter Day feat. Susan Hamilton" and "Lay It On The Line feat. Zoe Gilby" both supply a dose of quality soul to the mix, making "Midnight Feast of Jazz" an essential album for the savvy soul-jazz dancer!


"Wow these guys have come leaps and bounds over the past year! This is quality all the way and will be hammered to an inch of its life on the show!" - Craig Charles (Funk&Soul Show on BBC6)
"This lot can groove! From Funky floor shakers to out and out Jazz-dance business with a touch of Latin and Soul: everything you need to bust a move!" - Phil Levene (Eclectic Jazz)
"High quality soul-jazz with a funky edge. Recommended!" - Oliver Korthals (X FM / Mojo Club)
