More Info:

'Vertaal's debut double LP, 'Paradigm Shifting' was released earlier this year to wide acclaim from the international jazz community and sold out on initial pressings. 2020's lock down and subsequent cancellation of the band's tour schedule led to extended periods recording in their home studio, on a barge on the River Stort near Stansted Airport. The duo, comprising keyboard player and producer Theo Howarth and drummer Ajit Gill recorded 'live' - Some of those recordings have now been made available on a special limited edition cassette EP featuring 4 tracks live studio tracks. - Three previously unreleased versions from the album 'Paradigm Shifting', 'Drop Off', 'Paradigm Shifting' and 'Alcazar' and a completely new track 'NDY' Designed to look a box of Swan Vesta matches, the tape itself is pink with an onbody sticker of a collection of pink-headed matches. Vertaal have been an increasingly notable presence in the nu-jazz scene over the past 3 years.
