"...a tasty groove-driven debut...a mix of Brazilian classics and Latin-leaning originals...A party album with as much muscle as style." - Evening Standard ****
"...packed with supremely tight grooves, ear-catching arrangements, an unashamedly feelgood spirit." - Jazzwise ****
"Deep, eclectic grooves!" - Bill Laurance, Snarky Puppy

We are excited to welcome six-piece London collective J Sonics to Lyte Records for the release of Different Orbits. J-Sonics have emerged in the last two years as one of London's hottest groove-driven jazz groups and their debut album brings together a fiery sax-trumpet front line fuelled by imaginative guitar work, and a powerhouse bass, drums and percussion rhythm section. The band push the energy out front and have built a formidable reputation as a compelling live act through regular appearances at prestigious London venues such as Pizza Express Jazz Club, Hideaway and Spice of Life as well as storming appearances at the 2014 Love Supreme Jazz Festival, 2015 London Latin Jazz Festival and the 2012, 2013 and 2015 EFG London Jazz Festivals.

Led by bass guitarist and composer Mike Flynn, J-Sonics features saxophonist Matt Telfer, trumpeter Andy Davies, guitarist and composer Clement Regert, drummer Gabor Dornyei and percussionist Jon Newey, all collaborating within an exciting mix of memorable originals and re- tooled jazz, Brazilian, Afro and rare-groove tunes. Different Orbits was recorded in a single weekend, live and direct in Wax Studios in Dalston.

Different Orbits is out now.
