Mark de Clive-Lowe / The Processional

Sunday Jazz Continues; as we check out Mark de Clive-Lowe  with  The Processional.  This is from his Church alum. Very relevant for today!! Check out the following statement  from the artist;

The Processional (from the Mark de Clive-Lowe album CHURCH)

“Featuring some of my favorite LA musicians, ‘The Processional’ is an homage to some of the greats that came before me. Specifically – Alice Coltrane, Joe Henderson, McCoy Tyner and J Dilla. In some senses it’s a concept piece, consciously holding those inspirations in mind. Low Leaf guests on harp and brings that Alice Coltrane undercurrent to the whole piece while Miguel Atwood- Ferguson on viola and Josiel Perez Hernandez on trumpet take the role of the horns. It’s a mood- setting entrance piece with a definite head nod factor with the synth bass and beats anchoring the whole thing.”
