Item Description

The Bo-Keys don't simply replay the Memphis instrumental tradition –they deliver a hard-hitting and authentic take on the city's original soul-stew sound. This soul-jazz combo was formed by bandleader and bassist Scott Bomar as an homage to the quintessential Memphis sound and features music legends Charles 'Skip' Pitts, Ben Cauley, Howard Grimes, Archie “Hubie” Turner, among others.

The incendiary soul/jazz/funk of The Royal Sessions, the Bo-keys most recent album, is a hard-hitting and authentic modern take on Memphis’ original soul-stew sound – a mixture of original instrumental and vocal features that fuse R&B fundamentals with elements of modern hip-hop.

Recorded and mixed at Willie Mitchell’s (Hi Records, Al Green) Royal Studios, The Royal Sessions is steeped in the Memphis tradition. But it’s much more than an homage: it’s the sound of Memphis now– familiar, fresh, and unquestionably fantastic.
