Mark De Clive-Lowe ‘Church’ album
Really enjoying this new album by Mark De Clive-Lowe, was attracted by the cover and gave it a listen on Bandcamp. He’s one of those names I’ve seen around for years and probably heard a few things but would be hard-pressed to name any of them. This album is a full on jazz epic taking in guests vocals, raps and solos but all wrapped up in modern production techniques and sampling. The overall tone reminded me of Stanley Clarke / Return To Forever or moments of Weather Report and I was taken by the opening instrumental jazz track that suddenly flipped and sampled itself, turning into a rap tune within a few bars. Hear and buy it here.
