MILANO JAZZ-DANCE COMBO on BBE comp "Seven Heaven"Published on Martedì, 07 Giugno 2011
When Gianni & Enzo Lo Greco (SoulStance / Quintetto Lo Greco) formed MILANO JAZZ-DANCE COMBO and recorded a self-titled album inspired by the great jazz-dance scene of the UK in the 80s, it became immediately clear they were on to something. The full-length instantly attracted the attention of DJs and radios alike, and now single "Much More feat. Colonel Red" is being included in BBE Records' compilation "Seven Heaven", put together by broadcaster, journalist, DJ and long time black music fanatic Mark Webster. The release taps into all areas of black music and features artists such as The James Taylor Quartet, Gizelle Smith & The Mighty Mocambos, Sunlightsquare Combo and Speedometer, just to name a few.
As for the band, Milano Jazz-Dance Combo have been hitting the studio recently to start laying down tracks for their second full-length, expected on RK sometime in 2012. If you're a vinyl addict don't sleep on the band's debut though, LPs have almost run out of stock and there will be no repress, so first come first served and get ready for it to become a sought-after rarity!
