The Leeds band has played gigs in Mexico, Europe, the USA, and all over the UK, with highlights including the legendary Jazz Cafe in London, Chicago's famed ?House Of Blues, and backing Sax legend Lou Donaldson. Other career highlights include being sampled by ?Dj Shadow,? remixed by Kenny Dope, as well as providing the soundtrack for the Commonwealth Games in 2002. One of the standout cuts, with a gem of a feature from pre-Grammy-winning, platinum-selling Corine Bailey Rae, is 'Your Love Is Mine.' The sublime soul ballad, in a similar vein of a classic ?Al Green? or Minnie Ripperton song, would fit perfectly at a summertime BBQ. The New Mastersounds ?are still very active today, and here they celebrate a milestone with a fresh look at their second album; although now close to 20 years old, it has aged brilliantly.
