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!

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!
