Daniel Buck A wonderful mix of instrumentalism, the flute and the harp in particular adding to the mystic and beguiling air that effortlessly transports the listener away both to the legends that the album draws on, and the more recent era the music is founded in. Favorite track: Saturn.

John Ponton, III This is some world class soul/funk/afro-beat that really pays tribute to the giants of decades gone by. All of the arrangements are exceptional, but I must say the strings really shine and add a nuanced complexity that just doesn't exist in modern music anymore. The Gods have been appeased! Favorite track: Pluto's Lament.

about

After repeatedly being visited by a strange messenger in his dreams while on tour in the islands of Greece, Toby Pazner became consumed with a vision to tell the stories of The Olympians through music. Chosen by the gods as a messenger for not only his musical gifts, but for his unique position at the center of the Daptone family, Toby built a home studio from scratch and employed some of the top soul musicians in the world to help him breath life into this album. The result is a dramatic and cinematic journey to the outer limits of instrumental soul music, built on a foundation laid by the same craftsmen whose bricks built the legacies of Sharon Jones, Lee Fields, Charles Bradley, The Budos Band, and Menahan Street Band, and painted with lush strings, harpsichord, harp, and horns. The Olympians is destined to be the instrumental gem of the year. Includes download card.
