Keyboardist and producer Jesse Fischer talks to Chris Philips about his 'Vein Melter' E.P and new album 'Day Dreamer'
Brooklyn based keyboardist Jesse Fischer was in the band for pop sensation Lunchmoney Lewis at the recent V Festival and has extended his stay for an exclusive, intimate date this Thursday August 27th at Jazz Refreshed at Mau Mau in London's Portobello Road. Fischer is someone who is constantly on the Jazz FM music radar with his many projects including his band Soul Cycle, remixes of Gregory Porter, Takuya Kuroda and Tribe Called Quest, up-to-date re-interpretations of classic Herbie Hancock funk-jazz and more. His recent collaboration with saxophonist Sly5thAve was a superb redux on Herbie's 1973 album 'Head Hunters' with pumping bass lines, decadent horn arrangements and contemporary club beats. Listen to his conversation on air with Chris Philips talking about the superb 'Vein Melter E.P' (named after one of the cuts on Head Hunters) and his new album 'Day Dreamer' for Ropeadope Records, leaning more on the acoustic jazz sound with guest players and vocalists.
