9 Lazy 9
On Ninja Tune
9 Lazy 9 joined Ninja Tune when Ninja Tune was just one grey metal cupboard in a run down London loft. Operating out of Italy in 1992 they soon gained respect for their ground cracking first album 'Paradise Blown'. Their sound, distinctively more sun than North Sea, is a smoky Mediterranean mix of vibes and good times.
Keir Fraserello and Giacomo Braddellini have been making music for many years in different guises before combining forces in Rome in the early nineties. They worked with some of Italy's finest musicians on their last album, 'Sweet Jones', recorded in the Umbrian Hills near Orvietto. Gianluca Petrella plays trombone, Mishael Levron guitar; Manu Bandettini plays flute with Adriano Tirelli on bassoon.
