The Next Move means a step further away from their pop base for British brothers Pat and Greg Kane, known as Hue and Cry. Where its previous release , Jazz Not Jazz, was somewhat transitional, incorporating jazzier elements, Next move dives expertly into sharp, impressive timing pieces and rowdy big-horn swingouts. on the albums title track, the guys proclaim, "gotta be more than the same old thing" - an apt description of the product, filled with brisk, bright drums and whirling keyboards for a retro celebratory tone.
The second jazz-based release by the duo on Linn Records.
Hue and Cry are two brothers, Greg and Pat Kane. Making soul, jazz and pop music since 1984, Next Move is the duo's ninth studio album.
