LIMITED EDITION 2LP VINYL RE-ISSUE W/ BONUS TRACK
Release Date: 31st March 2023
"In celebration of a KU special double LP repress, Nim-Sadot reflects back on his 2018 debut album, Nim Quartet. It's been 5 years since Sadot released his first collection of tune0s. Selections he made from a library of tracks that he had been building since 2005 and spanned up until the conception of the record, in 2017. By the time the bassist and composer had gathered enough confidence in his craft and felt ready to share music that was his, he had a batch of 60 songs to select from. The song "MTB '' was created in Sadot's first year of composing back in 2005, so the record truly captures the full scope of a 12-year creation process and the evolution that took place amidst learning to create. At the time of making the album, Sadot hadn't quite found a steady rotation of players to make up a band, which speaks to having three different drummers on the project. However, he did have a clear vision in his head for where the melodies should land, and thought they would be communicated best on trumpet. An instrument that is a constant on every composition, with the exception of one track on the record, "Good Cat, Bad Cat", written by keyboardist, Hamish Balfour. The trumpet doesn't feel missing, but it is maybe the biggest shift in feel on the project, and having the knowledge that it's only one of two tunes on 'Nim Quartet' not composed by Sadot, you can certainly hear a different voicing in the music. The repressing of the record is also coming with an album art makeover. The new cover art is by KU goto, Marko Vuleta- Djukanov who did fellow roster mates Robohands and E. Lundquist album art."
