Kelley Hurt, Chad Fowler, Christopher Parker, Bernard Santac - Nothing But Love, The Music Of Frank Lowe
Cat. no: CDMAHA007
Release Date: 5th February 2021
Recorded in Brooklyn, New York in June of 2019, this group which had never previously assembled, was brought together by a single thread. Each of its members had played or recorded with the late saxophonist Frank Lowe.
And each had been profoundly influenced by his music. This record celebrates Frank with new recordings of 7 of his compositions. From the record’s title track “Nothing But Love’s” playful accessible groove to the soaring catharsis of “In Trane’s Name”, this group will take you on an emotional journey of extremes.
True to Frank Lowe’s musical essence, though the band plays his compositions, they serve as vehicles for free exploration which at times sounds uncannily pre-composed.
Though this full group had never previously played together, the connective tissue of Frank’s music creates a cohesion expected of a working band after years of getting to know each other.
