Press Release :
After their critically acclaimed debut album "Kind Soul", The Stance Brothers return with a new 7-inch titled "Pick 'n' Roll" / "Youth Groove".

The sound is now perhaps a bit more soulful than with the previous releases and their new horn section adds another dimension to their already unique sound. The A-side "Pick 'n' Roll" is a soulful and sunny groover with a catchy horn riff, heavy percussion and "Tighten Up" influenced bass line. B-side "Youth Groove" is a funkier piece that's based on a dialogue between the guitar and the sax. The horn arrangements on the background might bring to mind the legendary T.S.U. Toronadoes.

The Stance Brothers is led by Teppo "Teddy Rok" Mäkynen. Teddy has gained fame both as a producer and an outstanding drummer. Teddy is the drummer of The Five Corners Quintet and its leader on stage, to name one of Teddy's jazz groups. Finnish jazz press has selected him several times as the "drummer of the year" and he has been awarded on many occasions. His debut album "Universal Four" by the Teddy Rok Seven received enthusiastic reviews and showed Teddys skills as a composer, arranger and producer. "Universal Four" also won the Jazz Record of the Year -award in Finland. "With one foot in the past and the other firmly placed on the kick drum, this new project from drummer/producer Teddy Rok looks like it has all the hallmarks of another classic" 4 out of 5 DJ Magazine on The Stance Brothers first single "Steve McQueen".
