Bit of a coup for London label Whirlwind to have the Canadian Jensen sisters trumpeter Ingrid and saxophonist Christine on the roster. Their album Infinitude is trailed above.
Christine Jensen says of the project: “What Ingrid and I have worked on together for so long has now finally been documented in a special way that includes some surprises, especially with our choice of the wonderful Ben Monder – when he says, ‘I’m gonna play’… you just know that it’s going to be something real special and meaningful. For us, with Infinitude, this is just the beginning.”
Interesting new release just out, listen to ‘Side A’ above, from Mark de Clive-Lowe who has dug deep into the Blue Note catalogue and created a live-remix mixtape recorded and improvised live in one take with the aid of a drum machine, sample pads, Rhodes and keyboards with dollops of jazz and hip hop filtering through. Guest cameos from rappers Bambu, John Robinson and Illa J, Inglewood CA- singer Nia Andrews, bass don Pino Palladino and cult saxophonist Nomad Pendergrass flesh the sound out.
