Album Notes
The Helmut Stein Experience played a mix of Deep Soul, Jazz, Blues and Cabaret. The music howled as well as whispered. A sound they called "Soul Cabaret".

Formed in 2000 by keyboardist/singer/songwriter R. Scott and saxophonist/composer/vocalist Philip Golla, the band issued their debut single "On Return/Big, Bad Feeling" on Butterfly Records and a self-released debut album "On Return" on their own Do Your Worst! Records in 2002. The band stayed busy with regular gigs in Southern California, was a 2003 Orange County Music Award nominee in the Best Live and R&B catagories and won for Best Blues in 2004. The group disbanded in 2006.


Uptown Game would be the perfect album for a burlesque routine. I wouldn't be at all surprised to hear the sultry strains of April Sweeney's voice or R. Scott's organ cue up behind The Velvet Hammer. Just you wait and see. - Michelle Salcedo, LA Music Guide

From the strong instrumental strolls captured on "That Barking Dog' and "The Boogaloo Inn" to the infectious funk of "Takes a Lot," The Helmut Stein Experience mines the past while carving out a sound of its own, blending jazz artfully with a number of other styles. - Robert Kinsler, The OC Register

Top notch Cabaret Jazz & Blues. Belter April Sweeney is the sexiest singer and R. Scott on keys and the bands primary songwriter proves he means business. - Rollong Stoned,
