Jake Mason cooks up some covers and new original tracks

Posted on 30 Apr 2014

It's been a fast paced start of the year for Alberts writer Jake Mason, with his solo covers album "Mai Sonique - The Alberts Sessions" released at the start of the year and Cookin’ On 3 Burners "Blind Bet" studio album to drop in July. 

“Blind Bet” contains 11 new original tracks written by Cookin’s core members Jake, Lance Ferguson (Bamboos) and Ivan Khatchoyan with beautiful string and horn arrangements by fellow Alberts writer Ross Irwin. “Losing Streak” featuring vocalist Daniel Merriweather is the lead single with the video shot at Alberts by video director Andrew Mortlock (The Basics)

Released on 4th July, "Blind Bet" has been described as “classic soul sounds with a modern cinematic twist”. Their sixth studio album features guest vocalists Tex Perkins, Kylie Auldist, Harry James Angus (The Cat Empire & Alberts writer) and Jason Heerah (Electric Empire). Joining the dots between Deep Funk, Raw Soul, Organ Jazz & Boogaloo, Cookin’ on 3 Burners are one of Australia’s premier acts universally loved by audiences from all around the world.

“Blind Bet” follows Jake’s recent release “Mai Sonique – The Alberts Sessions” which was a step out of the raw funk ‘n’ soul into a ukulele driven tropical paradise reworking songs from Alberts publishing catalogue. These new interpretations were recorded and featured virtuoso Sam LeMann,  tropical instruments and some of Australia’s finest vocalists. Songs from Alberts catalogue include Love Is In The Air, When You’re Smiling, Groovin’, Mah Na Mah Na and Sentimental Journey.
