“Yes, it does sound like some Clint Eastwood spaghetti western showdown shit is about to go down in the center of town. Some somber melodies here – get the coffins ready. Sergio Leone and Lalo Schifrin would approve.” - Jake Funk Mayor

Rhythm & Blues
Scaramanga, the man with the golden pistol in the famous James Bond movie, is synonymous with elegance, sound power, exoticism and good humor. Instrumental, energetic and fast-paced music that invites you to dance and at the same time proposes different sounds; which captivates everyone who listens to it and "at times sounds like a train engine," according to critic Joel Codina (Núvol).
Headhunter's Tribute band
MT Pockets Jam Band is a tribute band to Herbie Hancock's Head Hunters. It's a vibe I always liked a lot, the mix of jazz and funk also with sci-fi imagery from vintage films.
All compositions are original tracks and were recorded on an 8 track Studer tape recorder using an MCI mixing console and few ribbon mics in a small room. Later some flute and synths were added in my studio and some voice samples also were used from the movie.
A project that was born from the meeting of these 3 musicians to pay homage to the music of the great trombonist Fred Wesley (James Brown). The success of that occasion led them to continue exploring the sound of the trio with a repertoire that takes us to New Orleans, as well as funk and soul-jazz. The characteristic sound of the Hammond, the "power" of the trombone and the groove as a common denominator, are the main drivers of this adventure called "The Marthians".
AB3 ORGAN COMBO
The trio formed by the organist Abel Boquera is a perfect blend of Soulful Organ music, jazz, and R&B. Giving new life to the organ trios of the 50's and 60's popularized by the greats Jimmy Smith, Jack Mc Duff, or Jimmy Mc Griff, their repertoire is a mixture of classic covers and original tunes from their first EP.
The solid "in the pocket" drums of Caspar St. Charles (Brian Jackson, Sharon Jones) and talented bassist-guitarist Tito Bonacera (Tonia Richardson, Phat Fred) complete the trio.
