about

Andrea Benini aka Mop Mop has a new album out, 'Isle Of Magic', rooted in jazz, exploring some entrancing voodoo territories with Carribean flavors and funk/soul fumes. Finally giving some meaning to the tag nu jazz, this album is a grower for sure. When Agogo Records submitted the whole album for consideration for this compilation, we were thrilled! And if many tracks could have easily fit our theme, the single 'Run Around' was an obvious choice, with its unique and charming tropical swing vibe, Fred Wesley killing it on trombone and our favorite Trinidadian poet Anthony Joseph on vocals!!

About Mop Mop :
Anyone familiar with Mop Mop will already know that their refined style has already lend them a unique place somewhere between the worlds of jazz, funk, latin and the Italian Postmodern style allowed the band to achieve the International film business as part of Woody Allen's 'To Rome With Love' movie soundtrack. But with this latest LP 'Isle Of Magic', Mop Mop digs even deeper to bring us one of their most engaging and organic records yet. 'Isle Of Magic' contains 13 tracks of pure Voodoo Jazz, Caribbean flavours, Afro- Funk, Exotic rhythms and Soul music. The album has been recorded between Germany and Italy with the use of vintage analog equipment to achieve a sound with all the “warm” qualities of vintage analog tape recordings; sessions have been recorded during the period March/August 2011. Isle Of Magic is an imaginary land populated by musicians who spend their time fishing, cooking, playing and practicing Voodoo rites at night. The whole album represents the soundtrack of this imaginary life.
