This bundle includes Busty and The Bass' album Eddie on 2x Vinyl LP plus a digital version of the band's ET Suite on MP3.

ET Suite EP reworks the track "ET" from their album Eddie released August 2020, with the band transforming it into four new, distinct and sonically diverse iterations. The EP features the legendary Verdine White of Earth, Wind & Fire as well as afro-soul singer Pierre Kwenders, and a trio of artists from the band’s Montreal community: Terrell Morris, Kallitechnis, and Tika the Creator.

ET Suite rethinks jazz improvisations in the era of Covid, pushing the limits of collaboration. Recorded entirely in isolation, each instrument was tracked independently during the fall of 2020. The 15-minute five-song ET Suite flows from the original psychedelic funk cut into a silky, smoothed out R&B rendition into an instrumental groove with a bassline courtesy of Verdine into the candle-lit afro-soul crooning of Pierre, all finally culminating in a wild free-jazz freak out. The EP showcases the group’s uncanny ability to seamlessly flow between genres, combining funk, jazz, and hip-hop into a sound that is as energetic as it is centering.

Eddie is the sophomore album from Montreal-based 8-piece soul-jazz collective Busty and the Bass. Eddie pulls from a 60 year history of soul, funk and jazz and distills it into a record that feels both timeless and of-the-moment. Old school legends of the form, like George Clinton and Macy Gray, lend their talents to new school sounds that share a lane with contemporaries like Anderson .Paak and the Free Nationals.

Produced by Grammy Award-winner Neal H Pogue (Outkast, Tyler The Creator) and Executive Produced by Earth, Wind, & Fire's Verdine White, 'Eddie' seamlessly combines moments of elated grooves, psychedelic funk, romantic R&B, and emotional soul; All with unparalleled musicianship and adventurous arrangements.
