    HMV RECORD SHOP』と『DEEP JAZZ REALITY』のコラボレーション企画、第2弾!


    杉本喜代志鈴木弘ゼロ戦。それぞれ日本のジャズ史にとって意義深い作品であり、かつレア・グルーヴ以降の世代にも圧倒的に支持された名作が、最新リマスタリングでアナログ復刻です。

    「DEEP JAZZ REALITY 尾川雄介による解説」
    身を任せることを躊躇うほどに深く妖しいグルーヴ。時代の中心を鋭く射抜いてきたギタリスト、杉本喜代志。その最高到達地点がここだ。

    日野皓正が熱望し、石川晶が惚れ込んだギタリスト、杉本喜代志。先鋭的で多彩なサウンドはモダン・ジャズでもジャズ・ロックでも常に最前線に立ち、時代の中心を鋭く射抜いてきた。その音楽表現の頂点のひとつを捉えたのが本作『バビロニア・ウインド』であることに異論はないだろう。市川秀男の波紋のように広がるエレピ、池田芳夫の豊満でいながら抑制の効いたベース、日野元彦の粒立ちの良い推進力の強いドラム、植松孝夫の野趣と艶を兼ね備えたサックス、そして一閃する杉本の鋭角なギター。深海をたゆたうような「Babylonia Wind」から繊細で儚い余韻を残す「Hieroglyph」まで聴き通したとき、その表現の多様さに目を瞠り、グルーヴの深さに慄くだろう。

      Track by Track Album Breakdown by Mark de Clive-Lowe

      01 The Mission featuring John Robinson 5:41

      The harmony and melody of 'The Mission' was conceived with a theme kind of feeling in mind. Something that could repeat over and over and build as it goes, telling its story through subtle shifts and movement. The horns take the melody and it evolves as I build the synths and beats and end up sampling everything that's going on live on the fly to flip it to a head nod beat. - Hip hop has always been a huge love of mine and one of my favorite unsung hip hop heroes is MC John Robinson. John has been a resident guest at CHURCH NYC since the clubnite launched there, so it made sense to have him feature on the record. He's an amazing storyteller, so I asked him to tell the story of CHURCH on this track. Aural liner notes for a digital generation...

      02 Nova Roda featuring Contramestre Xingu (pronounced "Shingu") 1:54

      I've been training the Brazilian martial art capoeira for about three years now and it's become one of the cornerstones of my daily life. Over that same time, more and more capoeiristas would come to CHURCH LA and blend in with the dancers – to the point where most CHURCH parties in LA ended up with a spontaneous roda (pronounced "hoda" - a capoeira circle) in the middle of the dancefloor! I wanted to include that vibe on the album so I invited my mestre (teacher) to come into studio and jam out an interlude of berimbau and vocals with me and ended up with this intergalactic sounding jam...

      03 Brukstep 5:09

      This is one for the uptempo DJs with plenty of club bounce. Rhythmically a nod to my decade spend in the thick of the West London broken beat scene – alongside the likes of 4Hero, Bugz in the Attic, Domu and the like, 'Brukstep' is about bringing that UK two-step groove into the jazz vibe. It gives me a chance to stretch out on the grand piano, and Duane Eubanks plays a blazing trumpet solo. As on all of the album, I did almost all of the electronic manipulations, drum programming, sampling and effects live in studio as we performed all together. That's an important part of the vibe to me – that the electronic elements are as spontaneous and organic as the acoustic ones.

      Tivon Pennicott - saxophone, Duane Eubanks - trumpet, Tim Lefebvre - bass, Nate Smith - drums

      04 The Processional 5:36

      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.

      05 Now or Never featuring Nia Andrews 4:14

      This is a song that Nia Andrews has been performing with me at CHURCH since we started the original LA clubnite over 3 years ago, but never recorded an official studio version. The musical vibe of the track was originally inspired when I was listening to a Max Roach record – I loved taking that
      inspiration and finding my own way to explore it musically. Nia (pronounced 'Nee-a') has been resident vocalist alongside me since the clubnite started and was in fact the person who christened the event 'CHURCH' in the very beginning! She's an amazing songwriter and calls this song "a love letter to her wildest dreams".

      06 Ghaziya 4:22

      The Ghaziya (also Arabic for 'conqueror') was an Egyptian dancer of the Nawari people banned in the 19th century and whose style later evolved into western forms of belly dance. This composition was always an exotic and mystical sounding melody built on a dancefloor sensibility. The name seems to really embody the intention of the composition. As with many of the instrumental tracks on the album, musically it's about transposing the traditional idea of a jazz quintet to a contemporary setting, exploring the textures and styles that electronics can bring to the music while keeping the soulfulness, spirit and FUN of what we're playing!

      07 Sketch for Miguel 5:57

      I wrote this composition when I was on tour in South Africa, sitting in my hotel room in Johannesburg one day. Thinking of my good friend and collaborator, viola master Miguel Atwood- Ferguson, I wanted to compose something that I could imagine his musical voice on. As with most of my compositions, it had a working title - 'Sketch for Miguel', and once we started playing it live and then took it to the recording studio, it seemed that the name really said it all. Along with Jamire Williams on drums and Ben Shepherd on bass, this is a fun play around the musical ideas I wanted to explore.

      08 Hollow featuring Nia Andrews 3:18

      Once again featuring Nia Andrews' soul-seeking songwriting and vocals, 'Hollow' tells the story of loss of faith, and loss of belief. It's a feeling of hopeless emptiness that we can all probably relate to on some level – while in the meantime the musical composition meets the pain with a sense of hope and renewal... After Nia's final words, I live-sample all of us playing and flip that into the outro beat, remixing the composition on the fly.

      Nia Andrews - vocals, Tivon Pennicott - flute + saxophone, Duane Eubanks - trumpet, Tim Lefebvre - bass, Nate Smith - drums

      09 Prayer 2:20
      A brief interlude focusing on that single moment – sitting in the studio at the piano, I sketched out a handful of chords for the band with no explanation, started playing, and this is what resulted...

      10 Imam 4:15

      The first of the two covers on the album, 'Imam' was composed by South African pianist Abdullah Ibrahim (aka Dollar Brand). Along with Hugh Masekela, Ibrahim is one of my favorite artists to emerge from SA and brought so much conviction and social commentary to his largely instrumental compositions. This is one I've always had fun playing and wanted to make sure it was part of the record as it does really capture the spirit of the clubnites – fun, funky and full of musicality. Nate Smith on drums and Tim Lefebvre on bass set the whole track up from the first note. Duane Eubanks drops another heavy trumpet solo and I get to play some more piano before flipping the proceedings with more live remixing...

      11 Sun Up Sun Down featuring theeKIDICARUS 5:07

      'Sun Up Sun Down' was inspired firstly by an Art Blakey record I had on randomly one day, and also by music by the likes of Branford Marsalis, Ornette Coleman and Thelonious Monk – I wanted to transport that classic jazz vibe into a whole new time. The jazz quintet shot into outer space. With a fun, bouncing vocal guest spot from Pharrell/Chad Hugo collaborator theeKIDICARUS and burning saxophone solo from NYC/Trinidadian Tivon Pennicott, it's my idea of dancefloor jazz from some other planet.

      12 Mason's Galaxy 5:11

      The second of the album's two covers, 'Mason's Galaxy' was originally recorded on a 1973 Charles Earland album 'Leaving this Planet' with drummer Harvey Mason (who the composition is named after) and others. I've always loved this tune – it's so moody and weird, and something I had long wanted to record my own version of. This seemed the right time, and once trombonist Robin Eubanks (Sun Ra, Stevie Wonder, Steve Coleman) agreed to guest on it, it was a done deal.

      MdCL - piano, rhodes, keyboards, synth bass, live electronic manipulation, sampling + programming

      Robin Eubanks - trombone, Tivon Pennicott - saxophone, Duane Eubanks - trumpet, Tim Lefebvre - bass, Nate Smith - drums

      13 Distractions featuring Nia Andrews 5:53

      The album closes with a tripped out dubstep-meets-jazz track where the quintet plus guitarist Tim Stewart gets to take full liberty stretching over the main groove, switching to the half-time horn-led sections and bringing some of that 70s Miles at the Fillmore vibe to a 2014 bass heavy clubnite somewhere in east London. Half way through the track abruptly flips to a downtempo acoustic soul vibe with Tivon Pennicott on flute and Nia Andrews bringing lyrics to the moment, preaching to us the risk of 'Distractions' and the renewed hope of it never being too late...
