Feelgood album of the year ? Well at least the best yachtreggaejazz album of the year. Hard to not do anything but smile and wear a foolish grin on your face while listening to this.
Favorite track: Like They Used To Say.
While the 'Hello, Summer 'LP is sold out, I've decided to let loose these 20 LPs that have very minor damage to the top right corner of the jacket. They are still in the shrink wrap, include the download card, and the LP is still in mint condition. Take a look at the pictures above to see the extent of the damage. If you're a collector who obsesses over the condition of his or her records - this is not the deal for you, but if you're looking to pick up a copy before theyr'e all gone, or looking for a second copy of the LP - grab a discounted copy ($14 + shipping) before they're gone.
Includes unlimited streaming of Hello, Summer
via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Pat Van Dyke is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer, and band leader. Pitchfork calls Pat’s most recent LP; “Hello,
Summer” an “album that comes to feel something like Count Basie directing a big band dedicated to lost Roy Ayers compositions; it is highly, almost restrictively controlled, but nonetheless dedicated to the funk."...more
(Tu nous) Connaissais de Face, I love this track and not because the title is in French and I'm French but because I think it represents the album well. A perfect and indefinable alchemy between incompatible ingredients. Unavoidable !...de Face, to profile, from all sides... #laurent¥auriol#
Like so many others, this came like a bolt out of the blue and, even though it's well before payday, I had to have this astonishing album on vinyl to prove it exists. The feel of the tunes makes me feel like the Impressions do, Curtis Mayfield, the big spaces and instinctive horns and stuff drifting in and out. Great grooves and I can see lots of ghosts nodding along to this with big smiles on their faces. At last! Anthony Cottrell
