The Tiger is back with more instrumentals, laced with cinematic, library-style funk, soul, jazz, rock and all groovy things in between that you can shake a stick at. “Reel To Reel” showcases Shawn Lee’s Ping Pong Orchestra in fine form with a return to the library sound that’s made him a sought-after musician and producer.
Here’s a few words from the “Tiger” himself describing his new album: “I love making records. Music is my drug and I’m a junkie. A Funky Junkie”! I once again return to my Ping Pong Orchestra guise making more cinefunk jams. From Blaxploitation (“Daylight Robbery) to Spaghetti Western (“Song for Ennio) and Motorcycle psych rock (“Biker Chick”) it’s all in there. Reel to reel uses some of my favourite instruments and sounds ie: vibes,double bass ,waterphone,alto flute,Marxophone and fuzz guitar. Analog film And Analog tape- Reel to reel and keeping it real for real!
Famous for his musical chops as well as his wizardry in the studio, Shawn’s music has been featured in countless TV programs such as Breaking Bad and most recently in HBO’s “Eastbound and Down”as well as the big screen in the comedy “The Sitter”. As much time as he spends in the studio you can catch him on tour with AM promoting their “Celestial Electric” album out on ESL.
