Connie Price and the Keystones are the Los Angeles musical group whose 7” releases kickstarted the Now-Again label way back in 2002 – and whose Wildflowers album was the first full length release by a new band on the label. Way back then we called it “cinematic soul” and wouldn’t you know it – the originator of the style, Lalo Schifrin, himself agreed. Seriously. Read the quote above. It’s real.
Wildflowers contained contributions by the Heliocentrics’ producer/drummer Malcolm Catto and Poets of Rhythm/Whitefield Brothers/Karl Hector & The Malcouns founder/guitarist Jay Whitefield. Now that Now-Again is the home to the previous ensembles and more (artist albums by Seu Jorge, Chop, Fabiano do Nascimento and MRR-ADM have come out on the label), it seemed fitting to revisit where it all started, with an expanded version of the album that kickstarted it all.
