Rodina Brings Classic “Blue Note” Soul, Jazz and Funk to Green Parrot

Rodina, a collaboration between Irish jazz vocalist  Aoife Hearty and keyboardist Joe Tatton from The New Mastersounds  bring their jazz-influenced ambient pop to The Green Parrot with shows at 5:30 and 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 16th

Rodina, visiting Key West for a run of  shows  features Aoife Hearty’s elegant vocal jazz  and  Joe Tatton of New Mastersounds’ classic soul, jazz and funk stylings and includes  local musicians  Wayne Hammond on bass, Randy Morrow on drums, and Andy Wescott on guitar  will be showcasing new music from their newest album, “You Got Soul”.   The UK song-writing duo have been for several years crossing the pond working with eclectic talent on both sides in the Soul / Jazz / Funk / Jam band world.

From their inception nearly two decades ago in Leeds, UK, The New Mastersounds have wholeheartedly embraced the “old school” label – their sound rooted deeply in those classic soul jazz, boogaloo and funk albums on labels such as Blue Note and Prestige by artists like Wes Montgomery, Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff and Lou Donaldson.
