Jazz Album Of The Year -Gilles Peterson Worldwide Awards 2006. In February 2006, the Nostalgia 77 Octet spent a week holed up in a cottage in the Welsh valleys rehearsing and record ‘Borderlands’, their first CD album of original material. Inspired by the sounds of funk, soul, gospel and Afro as well as the classic jazz LPs of the 60s and 70s, ‘Borderlands’ captures the warmth and atmosphere of the golden age without compromising Benedic Lamdin’s natural flair for tough rhythms and irresistible hooks. Fans of Ben’s music will be enthralled by the territories he explores with the Octet on this record, while newcomers will recognize them as luminaries of the UK jazz scene.
