Hot off the heels of his current soulful smash, ‘Believe In Love’ (ft Fraser), multi-faceted (just a bit clever!) Jazz/Soul/Funk head, Dan Goldman aka JD73, unleashes his eagerly awaited third album ‘Make You Move’! Executed to the highest level of production and musicianship, ‘Make You Move’ has apparently been 4 years in the making. With 10 stunning tracks, the album beautifully joins the dots between Jazz, Soul, Funk, Disco and Electronica. From the gospel-funk-infused grooves of the opening title track, the sweet Neo-Soul outing ‘Gimme A Chance’, and the feel-good Jazz-Funk fuelled ‘What You Got’, through to sublime freestyle Jazz instrumental ‘Tripping Out’; every irresistible cut will have your hips swaying, your feet shuffling and your heart dancing!
The album features an array of Northern UK based musicians and vocalists, including Pete Simpson (Sunburst Band, Opolopo, Domu) Sarah Garvey (aka Ella May/Nightmares On Wax) Miss Modest (JD73) Fraser Jowle (JD73, Afro Elements), Harriet Soulstress, (an up and coming vocal talent from Bradford) and The Haggis Horns (Mark Ronson, The Fantasy Funk Band).
“After my last Disco-influenced album ‘Pure Gold’ in 2010, I knew I wanted to make an album that was more spacious, deep and multi-layered with a more progressive Soul/RnB sound, but still using live drums and real instruments played in one take (wherever possible). ‘Make Your Move’ may have taken almost 5 years to make, but the main objective has always been very clear and steered the album’s direction from day one: to leave the listener feeling uplifted and inspired, hopefully helping anyone that’s fallen on hard times to find the courage to make moves towards better times. I feel like I’ve achieved my objectives and I’m hugely proud of the end result and everyone’s heartfelt performances – I really can’t wait for everyone to hear it!”
‘Make Your Move’ is out now on Splash Music Productions
