Founded in 2016, Owned & Operated by musicians, artists, fans & long time collaborators
Sam Eastmond and Ben Greenslade-Stanton.
East Green Records has a simple aim:
To make the records the artists want to make; their vision unadulterated.
To record and release great music that needs to be heard.
Australian born, UK-based Multi-Instrumentalist, Composer, Producer and Educator, Ben Greenslade-Stanton is at home in a myriad of musical styles.
Grandson of the legendary British MD/Producer/Pianist Arthur Greenslade, BGS is forging his own musical path
as a key member of stellar musical outfits
The Mighty Mocambos, The Snitch and The Spike Orchestra, his distinctive high octane trombone bringing outrageous energy to all musical situations.
On the other side of the glass Ben is a master producer and recording engineer working with the meticulous care and subtle creativity that is the hallmark of his production.
His recent work on both sides of the glass at Kungar Sound Studios graces many Trans-Atlantic record releases.
Tzadik Label artist, Composer, trumpet player and bandleader Sam Eastmond writes music born of his love of orchestration and structure entwined with the spontaneity and interaction of improvisation. His distinctive soundworld is the result of his desire to meld a wide range of influences and genres into a cohesive musical whole.
Sam draws from a diverse array of influences. Jazz, Klezmer, contemporary classical and cartoon all inform his work. Large ensemble the SPiKE Orchestra draws these eclectic styles together in conjunction with more improvised styles.
"...Arranger Eastmond's inventively effective mix of avant contemporary and more rootsy styles turns out to be a passionately ecelctic reflection on it's subject. With an injection of some Ellingtonian swing, brass voicing evoking Gil Evans' flamenco-ish passages from Sketches of Spain, elements from Brecht-ian Weimar caberet, bop, free improv with Nikki Franklin's non-verbal, avant-improv vocals through to downtown New York klezmer, this is an entirely positive form of commemoration...."
