Pan Amsterdam listened – More talk, less trumpet. He adhered to this for only one song on the forthcoming album... The Pocket Watch.

The Lotion Song is the follow-up single to Plus OnePlus One achieving BBC 6 Music Playlist.

Around the same time we were discovering Pan Amsterdam's true identity,Pan Amsterdam regained his memory. He is indeed, Leron Thomas but that doesn't mean that he has lost his ability to conjure up the personality known as, Pan Amsterdam. We asked him why his Pan Am character is so "fashionably late". He readily responded with, "Cause nobody showed up in the first place". He went on to explain that many musical genres today, are "one long song of that particular genre" and are "a by product of the hyper-normalisation that we find ourselves currently, in". He then promptly digressed, as if he was seemingly growing wary of explaining. No doubt the Art explains it better.

  We have to ask ourselves why people of all ages still gravitate to Jazz, performed in its most traditional form. My contention is that Jazz is radical and very much alive. To take a so-called "older" art form/ style and express one's present self, is nothing new. Bob Dylan used Folk music. Ray Charles used Gospel. The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin used the Blues etc. And the fact that some of us are still complacent in chasing the current trends and are baffled when this occurs is totally understandable because it is a radical thing happening in real time yet it bends, time. When we hear young and older Jazz soloists playing traditional standards at a jam session in a late night club/bar, we are hearing countless radical permutations of harmonic and rhythmic approaches to that particular standard. It won't necessarily be the way that ColtraneMonk, or Bird played those standards in their day. And that's not always a bad thing.

This understanding feels very much aware of itself in Pan Amsterdam's ‘The Lotion Song’. With thatmanmonkz on production and Pan Am's "Kung Fu", as he calls it, this tune feels like a current solo over a traditional standard in a late night Jam. 

Or something like that...

The Lotion Song is the second single taken from the forthcoming project ----- The Pocket Watch.
