Keyboardist Eddie Moore and his band, The Outer Circle, are soon to release a new album to follow up 2013's The Freedom of Expression. Yet on the path to this new release, the group which includes guitarist Adam Scholzman, bassist DeAndre Manning, and drummer Pat Adams recently put out Live in Kansas City. Among the songs on the new album is Moore's original composition, "The LBC", which the band performed live at Kansas City, MO's The Tankroom for their new video. Check out the video of the performance of this soulful song, impeccably filmed and edited by Damien Randle for ill Mannered Media, after the jump.
Moved my Sounds For Sunday playlist from Soundcloud to Mixcloud in order to have a greater selection of tracks. I still need to buy a decent mic so the voice-overs will be getting better in the future. I still think this is a strong set nonetheless. Hope you dig it.
I'm sitting in for Kory again on Rhythm Heads this week and decided to focus the show on the recent works of drummer Marcus Gilmore who is a verifiable monster. This show was a fun one to make.
Rhythm Heads for 1 August 2015
Ibrahim Maalouf never rests. Since we last heard from him in 2012, when he released WIND with Frank Woeste, Mark Turner, Larry Grenadier, and Clarence Penn, Maalouf has dropped no less than 4 albums, DIA and ILLUSIONS on the same day in 2013, and Au pay d’Alice with symphony orchestra, choral and French rapper/poet Oxmo Puccino, as well as the soundtrack for the Yves Saint-Laurent movie, in 2014. Unfortunately, all those missed our radar. But not to worry, 2015 has two new Maalouf albums in store for us to be released both on September 25th. First off all, Kalthoum will be an homage to the Egyptian singer and actress Oum Kalthoum and will feature powerhouses Mark Turner on piano (yeah, you read that right), Larry Grenadier on bass and Clarence Penn on drums. Expect an acoustic set with tinges of Arabic sounds. To counterbalance this more traditional offering, Maalouf is also releasing, on the same day nonetheless, RED & BLACK LIGHT an opus with a more electro-pop-rock feel featuring French juggernaut Eric Legnini on keys, François Delporte on guitar and Stéphane Galland on drums. Check out “Red & Black Light” the first single from this second album below the jump. Let’s just say it got us really hyped up to hear the whole thing! You can pre-order RED & BLACK LIGHT on iTunes.
