Two music makers from New York, Jesse Fischer and Sly5thAve, have joined forces on their newly released “Vein Melter” EP. On this homage to Herbie Hancock’s legendary Jazz album “Head Hunters”, the duo reframes four masterpieces for the modern day music fans and do it oh so well.
Multi-instrumentalist/producer/engineer and computer science savant Jesse Fischer has made quite a name for himself. He did this by producing for other artists as well as his own album projects and touring with artists like Freddie Jackson.
Jazz school alumnus Sly5thAve, who plays a mean horn, is a composer/producer/arranger who has toured with artists including Prince, Taylor Swift and Quantic. We strongly suggest you peep his super jazzy debut album titled “Akuma”, which was released last year.
Vein Melter is available on Tru Thoughts and pressed as a limited edition 12-inch (300 copies) and of course on iTunes. We played the incredible “Chameleon” on our previous radio show, but here it is once more. This is too good to be ignored!
