saved by the bell

by: joe tatton trio


“Saved by the Bell” is an energetic slice of funky piano laced with New Orleans vibes and an icing of percussive cake. More dancefloor-driven than the prior two releases on Color Red, Joe Tatton wanted to feature long-time New Mastersounds collaborator, Sam Bell on percussion to round out the sound and impart a swaggering boogaloo vibe. This contrasts the two prior releases on Color Red that were more introspective and is a perfect capstone to the series to highlight Tatton’s versatility ranging from acoustic piano trios over red wine to raging night clubs ushering in the daylight.
