THE FILTHY SIX
The Filthy Six are the most exciting, authentic Soul Jazz outfit in the UK today and have established themselves as one of the most electric live acts on the scene.
Their soaring horns, blistering guitar and gut-wrenching Hammond are fuelled by one of the hardest grooving rhythm sections around, producing a hip-shakingly powerful mixture of jazz, funk and boogaloo totally in keeping with the finest traditions of the Blue Note sound.
Led by trumpeter Nick Etwell (Foo Fighters, Beck, Mumford & Sons) this crack unit of erudite musical gunslingers have graced the bands of some of the biggest names in music including Amy Winehouse, Tom Jones, Jill Scott, Mark Ronson, Jack White, Dionne Warwick, David Axelrod, Fred Wesley, Pee Wee Ellis, Ronnie Spector, Antibalas, Spiritualized, The James Taylor Quartet and the Atomic Bomb Band to name but a few! These instrumental groove merchants fuse boundless energy and incredible musicianship to create tight, funky music that moves the mind, body and soul whilst simultaneously tearing the roof off every venue they play.
March 2016 sees the release of their third studio album – More Filth – on the legendary Acid Jazz label, and the band is taking the album out on the road in April for a short UK tour.
Already getting airplay on BBC 6Music (Huey Morgan, Craig Charles F&SS), BBC Radio London (Robert Elms) and Jazz FM, the album is undoubtedly their filthiest yet, jam packed full of Soul Jazz workouts and heavy funk grooves.
This record has been scientifically engineered to have you moving and grooving so hard you’ll burn holes in not 1 but 2 pairs of boots and a large chunk of that dance floor too. Bad. Ass.
“Impressive Soul Jazz sounds… A groove monster!” – Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show BBC 6Music
“Hip, funky and soulful…simultaneously deep and joyful.” – Shindig Magazine “****”
“Extremely funky. Intricate guitars, perfect brass breaks and groovy Hammond, all moving along to a beat that should see the dance floor breaking into a sweat without question. Nice!” – Scootering Magazine
