New album Gare Du Nord exclusively on Music On Vinyl

Blue Note and Music On Vinyl share a love for quality music and a high standard of excellence. So it makes sense to work together to release the newest Gare Du Nord album.

Out on June 4th!

GARE DU NORD - RENDEZVOUS 8:02 (1LP) - MOVLP560
When Dutch guitarist Ferdinand Lancée and Belgian saxophone player Barend Fransen formed Gare du Nord in 2001, they started writing lounge music. The twosome composed a songcycle to express their contemporary interpretation of traditional delta blues.

Their debut album '(in search of) Excellounge', released in 2001, was certified gold. The follow-up 'Kind Of Cool' was released in 2002. Several songs of both albums have been used in 'Six Feet Under' and the movie 'Ghost Rider'. 'Rendezvous 8:02', their newest and eighth studio album, contains eleven tracks.

Two of the songs on this album are destined for a soundtrack-pitch for the new Quentin Tarantino movie entitled "Django Unchained". Besides a new track ("Tarantino's Tango"), Gare Du Nord recorded a new version of "Pablo's Blues", in which blues legend Robert Johnson excels.

Music On Vinyl is proud to make 'Rendezvous 8:02' its very first Blue Note release!
