BJ on pedal steel, Roger Beaujolais on vibraphone and Simon Thorpe on double bass. Exploring a new genre. For guys already so well established in the music world the LushLife project is a blast of pure youthful energy and enthusiasm combined with great musicianship, artistry and experience. LushLife was born with a fascination and curiosity to bring pedal steel and vibes together for the very first time. This collaboration of true exploration took them into territory encompassing jazz, chamber music and contemporary compositions, influenced by a century rather than a decade. Bringing Simon into the mix was the perfect melt. Perfect artistry, idiosyncratic personalities, a wry humour and parallel styles unexpectedly converge and intertwine. This feel good music is strangely familiar, captivating and cool as if born in the confines of established music architecture, but reinvented... and so it’s become known as ‘Loft Jazz’, a genre a step ahead. Innovating in a changing recording world The album was widely revered as a contemporary sonic masterpiece. From the outset LushLife have endeavoured to innovate, from inspired recording and production techniques.
