Description

Joined by Dave Guy (Tonight Show Band, The Dap-Kings), Leon Michels (The Arcs, Lee Fields, El Michels Affair), Nicholas Movshon (The Arcs, Lee Fields, El Michels Affair), Homer Steinweiss (The Dap-Kings, The Arcs), Michael Leonhart (Musical Director for Steely Dan, David Byrne), Neal Sugarman (The Dap-Kings, Sugarman 3), Aaron Johnson (Antibalas, El Michels Affair) and Evan Pazner (Lee Fields), the brilliantly insane Toby Pazner delivers the most captivating soul album of 2016 with his project The Olympians.

Toby Pazner plays the fruits of his long labour to his old friends Gabriel Roth and Neal Sugarman. The owners of Daptone Records are immediately enthusiastic and agree to release the record. From the harp cascades that begin "Sirens Of Jupiter" to the furious brass finale on "Sagittarius By Moonlight," The Olympians have created a new sound. It's an ancient dream of distant Greece, embedded in indulgent widescreen arrangements, with exactly the kind of raw rhythms you'd expect from Daptone.
