ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
‘The Cooker’ is Redtenbacher’s Funkestra’s fifth all-instrumental outing. This 11 piece, London-based ensemble is led by Austrian bassist Stefan Redtenbacher who draws his inspiration from Jazz, Funk and Soul. He has forged his own brand of Funk without conforming to any trends – ranging from P-Funk, to JB’s to Funk Fusion – all with a mighty big horn section and recorded with a retro tinge…a far cry from the oom-pah-pah that he grew up with in his native country of Austria. He still loves Strudel but definitely favours the Funk.

The band was formed in 2005 with one of Britain’s most exciting tenor sax players, Jim Hunt and expanded to a six piece a few years later by adding Sid Gauld, Incognito’s trumpet player, to the regular line up. For the past 7 years they have performed on a regular basis at the long established 606 Jazz Club in London as well as numerous venues in the South-East of England in addition to British and European Festivals.

Their records feature the core sextet enhanced by the best of British Jazz Funk musicians as well as superstar legends like Lenny Pickett (Tower of Power) and Fred Wesley (James Brown, Parliament) to name just two.

Their live shows are highly entertaining, at times intense, peppered with instrumental deftness but always with a sense of fun and humour, customarily guaranteeing ‘a good night out.’

‘The Cooker’ captures the live spirit of the core ensemble with carefully tuned arrangements and enhanced by two muscular horn sections while remaining firmly rooted in foot tapping groove music. Their special guests are Lenny Pickett (Tower of Power), Eric Krazno (Soulive) and Michael B. Nelson’s Hornheads (Prince).
