iTunes Editors’ Notes

Benedic Lamdin is a producer and composer seemingly fascinated with jumping borders and building musical bridges, working from a jazz foundation that supports dazzling spires of everything from post-bop jazz, early British folk, downtempo grooviness, hip-hop, and funk. With a number of notable releases under the moniker Nostalgia 77 and a fairly steady group of band members, Lamdin has settled nicely into a coolly patchworked landscape that’s blessedly hard to label. There are moments on A Journey Too Far when dusty Joni Mitchell and Laura Nyro records are conjured (though vocalist Josa Peit sounds like neither); there are numbers that slink and slide like late-night come-down soundtracks, with percussion and muted woodwinds knitting a warm hammock to drift away in. The R&B/reggae–inflected voice of Jeb Loy Nichols arrives to perk things up for some languid dancing to sultry horns on a few tracks, and songs like “Backlash” flirt with a tango-ing, Doors-ish vibe churned out by cool guitar and vintage Rhodes piano. “An Angel with No Halo” is a ballad that changes shape, with a funky R&B center and ephemeral, gossamer bookends.
