Eddie Roberts & The Fire Eaters - Burn! (2011)

When in touring and recording in Spain with his band The New Mastersounds, guitarist Eddie Roberts joined forces with The Sweet Vandals' rhythm section, adding Chip Wickham's (Nightmares On Wax, Rae & Christian, The Pharcyde) world-class flute and Taz Modi's funktastic organ from Leeds/UK, and he sensed that this could be the beginning of something special. Burn! is the proof that his feelings were true. The Fire Eaters, as the combo was called, recorded the album produced by Eddie Roberts himself in 2010, completed 12 tracks including a good number of originals as well as their versions of classic acid jazz & soul tunes like I Believe In Miracles, the Lope Song or Latona, travelling way back to the times when jazz had soul and there was freedom in the rhythm.
