Gus McKinstray

Like a stiff drink or easing into your favourite chair, the smooth and sultry sounds of Gus McKinstray and his saxophone are the perfect way to relax and unwind after a long day.

Falling somewhere between smooth jazz and bust-a-move funk, this album will melt your malaise and wither your worries, returning you to a natural state of equilibrium.

The jumpy slapped bass that introduces opening track ‘Hello Buddy’ sets the tone for a record which offers non-stop enjoyment from start to finish. The funk rolls on with upbeat numbers like ‘Nightmoves’, while tracks such as ‘Mum’s Song’ and ‘Where Were You’ pull back slightly from this dynamic, dialling in more contemplative tones.

Smooth, calm and more than a little swanky, ‘Life’s A Mystery’ is an album made for after-dark, when cities come alive and the cool cats come out to play.
