Hot Damn!

A 12 track jazz-funk album (1h 2m 33s) — released October 1st 2007 on First Word Records
Introducing the brand-new album from The Haggis Horns: "The best f***ing horn section in the world" - Mark Ronson After three sell-out singles and a decade of gigging across the globe The Haggis Horns finally release their debut album Hot Damn! The nucleus of the group, Jason Rae (husband of Corinne Bailey Rae), Atholl Ransome and Malcolm Strachan have become the horn section of choice for the world's top artists. Currently on tour as part of Mark Ronson's band, the horns can name Amy Winehouse, The New Mastersounds, Lou Donaldson, Corinne Bailey Rae & Nightmares On Wax among the selection of the artists that have called on them to lend their lungs to shows or recordings. With guitarist Ben Barker taking on production duties and the addition of some of the UKs finest jazz and funk musicians including Cinematic Orchestra drummer Luke Flowers, the Haggis sound is at the forefront of the burgeoning new funk scene. This album sums up everything about the band: at it's core, hard-hitting dancefloor funk, (Hot Damn! / The Bump), but also taking in reggae (Eskimo), loose-limbed instrumental hip hop (Huffalump) and slamming afrobeat (The Traveller / Tribe Vibes). Add in a couple of cover versions that have been popular additions to the band's legendary live shows (Enter The Haggis / Who's Gonna Take The Weight?), and you have the funkiest sound this side of The JBs. With fans including Gilles Peterson, Bill Curtis (Fatback Band), Quantic, Mark Ronson, Mr. Scruff, The Nextmen and more, this is one of the year's essential funk releases daydream Straight No Chaser "Magnifi cently funky" Quantic, Tru Thoughts "Brilliant! Very good on the floors" Mr Scruff, Ninja Tune "Beer-battered funk that's as good in the home as it is in the club" The Nextmen "Like Braveheart on horns bad MF's" Stuart Zender, Jamiroquai
