The Young Patter

A 2 track funk single (7m 54s) — released February 28th 2011 on Record Kicks

Funk titans The BAKER BROTHERS are back at it with a brand new double-sider 45. On side A they provide an infectious instrumental jazz-funk/jazz-dance number with “The Young Patterâ€, a horn-driven funky floor-filler complete with breakbeat and super catchy bassline you can’t help but respond to. On B, the group revisit Rokk’s mega rare and impossible to find 1976 modern soul single “Patienceâ€, which Keb Darge claims is one of his favorite records and which was included in the recent “California Soul†compilation on Ubiquity. The Baker Bros landed at RK late in 2010 with top notch 45 “Once I Had A Friendâ€, judged to be among the best singles of 2010 according to iTunes UK and also included in the compilation “SoulShaker Vol.7â€. The band however already had almost 10 years worth of prior experience under its belt, including 6 albums, a live DVD and numerous singles. Having paid their dues and earned the respect of such names as Jazzman Gerald (Jazzman Records), Brother ?uestlove (The Roots / Okayplayer), Mark Lamarr (BBC 2), Dr. Bob Jones (Future Soul) and more, the band is now ready to push it to the next level and repeat the magic of their previous single with these two new tracks of soulful finesse available on 45 and Digital Download. A definite must-have!
