Album Notes
Simon Goulding - FAMILIA.
The new studio album by UK Bassist Simon Goulding. A mixture of Jazz/Fusion/Latin-Jazz. Draws heavily on Cuban influences from Rumba to Songo and beyond. Featuring Adam Linsley-Trumpet & Flugelhorn. Mat Sibley-Tenor Sax. Alan Wormald-Guitar. Nik Harrison-Guitar. Andy Blakeley- Timbales on selected tracks.

Simon Goulding had performed/recorded with the Bee Gees, Englebert Humperdink, Joe Longthorne, Rick Astley, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, Peter Kay, Rene Froger, Ronan Keating, PP Arnold, The Four Tops, Freddie Starr, Jovenes Clasicos Del Son, Tony Christie, David Essex, The Drifters, The London Community Gospel Choir, Sheila Ferguson, Peter Grant to name but a few. On his new album Familia, Simon plays, 5 & 6 string basses, EUB (electric upright bass), Keyboards, Drum & synth programming, Percussion, clave & Berimbau.

"The album is about drawing on my memories of Family past & present here and in Cuba and the experiences we've been through. with the 1st track 'Familia' (Family) setting the scene and the final track 'Mirando al futuro' (Looking to the future) saying where we would like to be in the future. I would say the album is HEAVILY influenced by Cuban music (Emiliano Salvador, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Los Van Van, Mezcla, Irakere) aswell as my love of Jazz/Rock (Miles Davis, Weather Report, Steps Ahead, Lee Ritenour's Friendship Group, YellowJackets, Lifetime). I wanted to portray all of these throughout the album".

What a fantastic album, it's nice to hear REAL music for a change. We had people over for dinner and drinks and had this album playing as well. Everyone commented on the music and wanted to know who it was. We were very proud to tell them & to direct them to where they could purchase the album. Well done to all involved and we are looking forward to the next one. We highly recommend this CD. AAAAA++++++

A bath of grooves
With this album,Simon Goulding enters in the great circle of the jazz-fusion talented players
and composers.
Each groove or melody lets a trace in our mind and brings some nice feelings.
As a bass player and fan of Yellowjackets and The Chick Corea Elektric Band,
those tunes already begin to influence me.
Thanks Simon for this so brilliant gift.
