The Sevillian jazz band O Sister!  releases his new album 'Brand New Day'

The jazz band O Sister! publishes his sixth album, ‘Brand New Day’ after fifteen years of career, as “a rebirth, a return to the roots and a reconnection with nature, also human nature“, as they announced in a statement.

The group has evolved its roots in vocal jazz, offering a palette of various colors, “a style free of stylistic corsets, without complexes and without dissimulation, where the swing comes out alone,” they explain.

With ‘Brand New Day’, the Seville-based sextet presents twelve of its own compositions that are a reflection of a “commitment to the present“and the future similar to what they have shown as a collective.

In this plethora of original material, the texts continue to gain weight: the lyrics deal with current and at the same time secular topics, and “They talk about what affects us, about what is emotional; of the earthly and the intimate”, they detail.

The reconnection with the natural includes human nature, and in that humor continues to play a leading role in the songs, fed back by direct and face-to-face contact with the public. “That is also honoring the legacy of swing from a century ago: critical commentary through irony,” they indicated.

It is the group’s first album with all their own compositions and that includes songs in Spanish. For the recording, the group retired to Garate Studios (Depedro, Manta Ray, Madredeus, Banda Bassotti…), a hamlet surrounded by light and silence on the slopes of Mount Belkoain in Gipuzkoa. Its usual producer has been Jordi Gil (Derby Motoreta’s Burrito Cachimba, Rocío Márquez, Bronquio, Arcángel…).

PRESENTATION IN MADRID

The band will present the new work at the Villanos room in Madrid, on April 4 and 5. The original group is made up of Paula Padilla, Helena Amado and Marcos Padilla (vocals) along with Matías Comino (guitars), Camilo Bosso (double bass) and Pablo Cabra (drums). For the recording, the trio of collaborators The Horn Department is added, formed by Julien Silvand (trumpet), Juli Aymí (clarinet and alto sax) and Carlos Santana (trombone and keyboards).

The conjunction of these elements has renewed Osister’s firm belief in a strictly live recording of the themes.which allows dialogue and which this time has even led them to record acoustically and without headphones,” they concluded.
