Soul Revivers ft. Ernest Ranglin
The debut single from The Soul Revivers is ‘Harder’ which features Ernest Ranglin, the 87 years old Jamaican master guitarist, and will be released on all digital services on the 29th May 2020, with the physical 7-inch to follow on 31st July on Acid Jazz Records.
The Soul Revivers are British reggae veteran Nick Manasseh, returning to Acid Jazz for the first time since his 1998 album The Shining, and David Hill formerly of the Ballistic Brothers and founder of Nuphonic Records.
The single has a hard-hitting rhythm topped with Ranglin’s fluid guitar, and has already garnered praise from Gilles Peterson who said, ‘This is special, return of the great Ernest Ranglin’, while David Rodigan excitedly commented, 'This is superb, so refreshing and so unique. Ernest Ranglin on top form’. Jazz FM have confirmed that it will be added to their playlist from the 1st of June.
While Soul Revivers reference their musical influences and heroes, they look forward, not back, an approach that will be reflected in their debut album ‘No More Drama’, which is currently being recorded for Acid Jazz Records.
