Luke Stewart & Jarvis Earnshaw Quartet - S/T
Brand new release on No Quarter Records!
Psychedelic post-bop is back, baby! Ok, that's a pretty big hole that you can cram just about any jazz-pigeon into but if you stopped paying attention after the last of the Coltrane estate was mined out and you're still pissed at John McLaughlin (as you should be) then take two sides of the Luke Stewart & Jarvis Earnshaw Quartet and don't bother calling me in the morning.
'Bassist Luke Stewart was called "one of the 25 most influential jazz artists of his generation" by Downbeat Magazine. Here he teams up with co-bandleader/sitarist Jarvis Earnshaw, drummer Ryan Sawyer and alto saxophonist Devin Waldan for a rich, expansive and mercurial set. Recorded at Pioneer Works in Red Hook, Brooklyn towards the end of the dark winter of 2021, the six performances explore and embrace chaos, ultimately finding a serenity made only more striking by what precedes it. The calm after the storm.'
