A1 La Sombra
La Sombra takes an altogether more rooted direction than Chip’s recent collaborative work, with the jazz of the late ’60s and early ’70s a dominating influence to the recordings. Comprising of seven tracks recorded in Madrid with musicians assembled by Chip from Madrid’s jazz scene, it combines contemplative explorations akin to Yusef Lateef’s early work on tracks like ‘La Sombra’ and ‘Pushed Too Far’. There’s a fiery cover of Camarón de la Isla’s classic ‘La Leyenda Del Tiempo’ and tracks like ‘Sling Shot’ and ‘Red Planet’ are locked in a groove harking back to Freddie Hubbard’s Blue Note era and Luv N Haight‘s Nathan Davis.
