Description

'Retro Future' by Brooklyn-based keyboardist, composer, and producer Jesse Fischer, is an offbeat, curious blend of jazz-funk, electro, hip-hop, psychedelic soul and various African influences. It includes seven originals along with compelling new takes on The 5th Dimension's "Aquarius", Jimi Hendrix's "Electric Ladyland", and Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide".

Following up 2011's independent release, 'Homebrew' (which featured turns from Gretchen Parlato, Stefon Harris, and Sean Jones), 'Retro Future' marks Fischer's label debut with ObliqSound. It features his working group Soul Cycle, consisting of alto saxophonist and flautist Brian Hogans, trumpeter and flugelhorn player Jean Caze, trombonist Corey King, guitarist David Linaburg, bassist Solomon Dorsey, percussionist Shawn Banks, and drummer Gabriel Wallace. Emerging vocalists Rachel Eckroth and Chris Turner are also featured on one song each.
