Google+ Beathearts: Mark de Clive-Lowe - Koko + Lee Roe (Remake)


Mark de Clive-Lowe - Koko + Lee Roe (Remake)

Is listening through Mark de Clive-Lowe's new release Leaving this planet EP. Excellent grooves as always but I keep coming back to the first track, Koko + Lee Roe. I know I've heard it before but couldn't figure out where until yesterday when I read Mark's track by track run through over att Mashibeats. MdCL:

"The first time i heard Gene Harris' album Nexus i was BLOWN AWAY. it remains one of my favorite synth-jazz-funk albums of all time. it was released on blue note records in 1975 and still sounds super fresh. along with the work of his peers at the time like the mizell brothers, george duke and herbie hancock, this album's a giant. every track has its vibe, but one turned my head straight away and has been a perennial favorite....

This new version was never about trying to better it or challenge it, but to pay homage to it and to a great time in music... enjoy."

MdCL's Leaving this planet EP is available now exclusively via his bandcamp
