How do you like your Jazz? If you like it played with seasoned precision and a driven sense of wanton abandon by some of the finest players on the planet, then you’re in luck as we prepare for the release of Mike Clark’s new album. Mike assembled the cats - Randy Brecker, Christian McBride, Donald Harrison Jr, Rob Dixon, and Antonio Ferao - for a live performance at The Iridium Jazz Club in New York City. Dubbed Indigo Blue, this is an all star band without the hype; six masters engaging in the sport of improvisation as collaborators seeking to transcend the individual parts. The recording is pristine, as if the perfection of the performance demanded the utmost care and attention. The result is a careful document in the history of Jazz. Indigo Blue: Live at The Iridium is set for release on July 12; stay tuned here for first listen and preorder on June 21.
