TENDERLONIOUS - STILL FLUTE [LP]
Catalogue No.: 22A041
Release Date: 29 Oct 2021
Genre: Broken Beat / Nu Jazz
Tenderlonious has proven himself to be one of the most versatile and uninhibited artists in music today, blending genres and multi-instrumentation with style and ease.
Whether it be jazz fusion with his band Ruby Rushton, Hindustani classical with Pakistani quartet Jaubi or deep house, electro funk and ambient electronica in his solo studio productions, he has accumulated a back catalogue of releases and collaborations that unveil a musician who is continuously striving to evolve and push the boundaries of sound.
'Still Flute' continues with that notion, combining his signature live flute and synth work over Detroit house, p-funk, spiritual ragas and ambient sound designs. There are four deep house jams, including 'Song For My Mother' and title track 'Still Flute', all embellished with energetic flute solos. 'Isaac's Theme' and 'Neptune's Mood' add the downbeat p-funk mood, while 'Seti
Khola' is a deeply spiritual Hindustani raga. 'Journey to Thra' and 'End Transmission' add the ambient palette to another phenomenal record from Tenderlonious and the 22a camp.
'Still Flute' is the long awaited follow up to Tenderlonious's highly acclaimed 2016 mini-album 'On Flute'.
