About the Album

Toronto’s iconic musical magicians the Shuffle Demons are excited to release their 9th album, Crazy Time. Their first studio album in 6 years, Crazy Time features 10 new original Shuffle Demons songs, 7 instrumental and 3 vocal that run the stylistic gamut, from hard driving instrumental modern jazz, to vocal driven funk rap, to blues. The record introduces virtuosic newcomer Matt Lagan on tenor sax and bass legend Mike Downes to the Shuffle Demons universe, alongside veteran demons Kelly Jefferson, Stich Wynston, and Richard Underhill. In celebration of the band’s 35th anniversary, original band members Mike Murley and Jim Vivian are welcomed back in to the fold to work their magic on 5 of the album’s 10 tracks. This is a dynamic new recording that features in-from-the-outside writing, virtuosic playing, and that classic 3 horns and rhythm Shuffle Demons sound. One of Canada’s hardest touring bands, the Shuffle Demons recorded Crazy Time between tours of Central America, New Zealand and Australia, and the Canadian jazz festival circuit. Long time Shuffle Demons listeners will find modern jazz instrumentals alongside the classic Bop/Rap vocal tunes that have comprised the band’s repertoire for 35 years. Nine of the 10 songs were written by Juno award winner Richard Underhill and one by Kelly Jefferson. The album was recorded by iconic engineer Jeremy Darby at Canterbury Music and produced, mixed and mastered by Jono Grant at Victory Drive Music. Crazy Time will be released worldwide on Friday, January 17th, 2020 on Stubby Records.
