Canada’s Cobblestone Jazz have established themselves as one of the most unique and inspiring bands of the past decade. Thanks to their exploration of house through the eyes of a jazz improv group, their music is derived from the organic energy of the group’s jam sessions and their now legendary live performances. Comprised of members Tyger Dhula, Mathew Jonson, Danuel Tate along with newest addition The Mole, Cobblestone Jazz are as accomplished individually as musicians and performers as they are a band - united by long term friendship, respect and passion for writing music in the moment. Their decade long history of releases on IsWhatItIs, !K7 and Wagon Repair have earned the praise and long time support from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Carl Craig, Luciano and Sven Väth. “Memories (From Where We Are)” celebrates the first of a series of 12″ releases that will come out on Wagon Repair over the course of 2011/12. The outcome of a Berlin jam session last fall, the band incorporated a Fender Rhodes, vocoder, and SH-101 to make up the core voicing of the tracks while a CS-20 provides the drive at the end of both. In typical Cobblestone Jazz fashion, the track was mixed live with no prior sequencing arrangement. The session was then cut by The Mole into two sublime edits - the results could be their strongest release since “Dump Truck".
