Hits The Sweet Spot

9 Lazy 9 are back, at long last, with their fantabulous new album 'Sweet Jones'. The band joined Ninja Tune when they were 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 vines and good times. On this album they have been working with some of Italy's finest musicians Gianluca Petrella plays trombone, Mishael Levron guitar; Manu Bandettini plays flute. The combined force brings you one of the freshest records to come out of Italy for some time.
