Anders Bast & The Bast’ards is a Copenhagen based band led by tenor saxophone player Anders Bast. The album Through Space & Time features all original compositions by Bast. Available on red tinted vinyl. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered at Thor Madsen’s studio Mazza Mansion.

It’s an inventive, engaging, creative album that mixes funk, jazz, blues and Latin influences […]. Constantly enjoyable, upbeat and positive.

At the midway point, Thor Madsen’s guitar technique swells and captivates and whilst there are no loose ends here, it’s his sound that I leave this piece clearest in my appreciation.
