According to the New Mastersounds guitarist Eddie Roberts, “West Coast Sounds is more than simply a band name for guitar maestro Eddie Roberts’ new endeavor—it’s a statement about where he’s at in his extraordinary life. Two years ago, the Welsh native and longtime Leeds, U.K. resident/globetrotting founder of The New Mastersounds packed his gear and headed to his favorite city, San Francisco. Roberts reconnected with Hammond B3 virtuoso and Boom Boom Room stalwart Wil Blades. He found drummer Jermal Watson (Dirty Dozen Brass Band) on this year’s Jam Cruise. When Jazz Mafia horn players Joe Cohen (tenor sax) and Mike Olmos (trumpet) guested on the New Mastersounds’ album Out on the Faultline, Roberts had an epiphany.”
“I realized how amazing they were, and it set an idea off,” he said in a statement. “The addition of horns automatically changes the sound, although I would say that the grooves and the overall style of the West Coast Sounds is more similar to the New Mastersounds than my solo material, which has usually gone in more of a club jazz direction.”
Roberts produced It’s About Time at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland using house engineers live to tape in just three days with the main band, and a few more dedicated to horn overdubs. The guitarist mixed the record himself and mastering is credited to engineer John Cuniberti, who has worked with The Neville Brothers and the Grateful Dead.
