For the kind folks in Tallinn, the band will repeat the celebration at Clazz on May 21st. There, Indrek Tiisel will be joining the trio for the second half of the show. In June, Roots will hit the road with Steve Lury, so this is probably your last chance to hear this line-up before August - but hear them you shall, especially since the early reviews of the EP have been quite positive and the airplay on rock, blues and jazz broadcasts most encouraging.
"On principle, I'm a listener who prefers songs - yet I am not disappointed to find all these tunes to be instrumentals," writes Tõnis Erilaid in Õhtuleht. "Go and listen!"
"Feet a-tappin', fun aplenty," agrees Raimu Hanson in Tartu Postimees. "Known as a blues brother, Roots shows here he's just as comfortable playing rock and roll."
NB! Roots Art Records is already taking orders for the EP (EUR5.- + postage) - the CD's will ship first thing Wednesday morning, for the preceding release date is quite rightly a national holiday. This CD will *only* be available directly through Roots Art Records or at gigs, and only 200 copies of the EP will be sold - if you place your order before 5 p.m. Tuesday (GMT +2, May 1, 2012), we'll get the band to sign your CD during the launch party, so hurry up and order now: roots(at)rootsart.eu!

Meanwhile, the trio's Jazzkaar show with Dave Arcari in Türi was a blast. The band wish to thank everyone who was there and who helped make it possible, and especially Uncle Dave himself - cheers! :)
