Marcus Strickland Twi-Life – People Of The Sun


Add to Wishlist

“Saxophonist and composer Marcus Strickland is a seasoned veteran who helped to pioneer this new rhythm and production aesthetic in jazz with 2006's double-length Twi-Life and 2016's brilliant, Meshell Ndegeocello-produced Nihil Novi, his debut for Blue Note. Since then, Strickland has toured the globe as a headliner with Twi-Life (keyboardist Mitch Henry, bassist Kyle Miles, and drummer Charles Haynes) and as part of the Blue Note All-Stars. On many levels, People of the Sun picks up where Nihil Novi left off, but goes deeper and wider. The previous set was deeply influenced by Strickland's cultural and musical upbringing. As a child he was exposed to both Afro-Caribbean traditional and popular sounds as well as Southern rap, Motown, John Coltrane, and George Clinton's P-Funk enterprise. Those sounds and many others entwine inside groove-laden post-bop, modal, and contemporary jazz frameworks while extending and subverting the entire jazz tradition. In addition to his bandmates, Strickland enlisted close collaborator and trumpet ace Keyon Harrold and Cuban session percussionist Weedie Braimah.” – All Music
