Grand Pianoramax, the unconventional trio of Leo Tardin on keys, Dom Burkhalter on drums and Black Cracker on rhymes, is set to drop their newest EP, Big Easy, on us May 8th. The album marks the debut of their collaboration with Swiss based label Mental Groove Records. The four track EP is, according to Tardin, “more laid-back, less dark, resolutely dancing and funky”, while still staying true to their unique blend of jazz, rock and hip hop. See for yourself by watching the official music video for the single “Big Easy” below the jump. The EP can be pre-ordered on iTunes and Bandcamp.
