Cookin On 3 Burners - Lab Experiments Vol. 1 - MixinSoul Messin
Hailing from Australia, Guitarist Dan West, Drummer Ivan "Choi" Khatchoyan and Organist Jake Mason make up the organ grinding trio known as Cookin On 3 Burners. "Lab Experiments Vol.1" is filled with 60s-influenced funk and soul compositions certain to get your groove on. Among the highlights are "Real Life Baby", a laid back tune with bluesy guitar rhythms from Dan West and soaring vocals from Emmi. "Wind Up" is a funky instrumental filled with wicked organ rhythms and funky guitar riffs. Veteran soul singer and native New Zealander Kylie Audist adds her strong pipes to the sun drenched mid-tempo "More Than a Mouthful". An engaging album that would easily fit into the crowded classic soul arena and hold it's own. These cats indeed know how to burn.
