Four80East – Off Duty
Off Duty is the sixth release from the Toronto-based acid-jazz group, Four80East. Don’t let the title of their latest album fool you – after over 20 years, veteran composers and remix producers Tony Grace and Rob DeBoer are busier than ever, finding colorful melodic and grooving new twists on their trademark Nu Jazz vibe.
Four80East is kickin’ back and chillin’ this time around with a fresh update on the classic acid jazz influence that drove their earlier recordings. Some of those unique sounds this time come from the duo’s spirited interactions with flutist Bill McBirnie and longtime Four80East contributors Jon Stewart and Bryden Baird
