Lions Of Chiaroscuro
Brownswood is very excited to anounce a
limited edition 7” single by Zara McFarlane in celebration of
Record Store Day 2012. The record features the track ‘More than
Mine’ (taken from her critically acclaimed album “Until Tomorrow”).
The flip ‘Lions of Chiaroscuro’ is a mash up of Steve Reid’s
classic ‘Lions of Judah’ and Zara’s ‘Chiaroscuro’, as re-created by
futuristic jazztronica act Emanative for Gilles Peterson’s charity
The Steve Reid Foundation which aims to assist ailing musicians.
“More Than Mine” begins with Peter Edwards’ brooding piano, soon
joined by Zara, who conjures a dejected image of herself, as she
compares herself to another woman. As the song develops, Zara’s
graceful vocals subside and Edwards’ understated and soothing piano
is joined by Binker Golding’s tenor saxophone. The rousing melee of
brass seems to buoy Zara, and a renewed confidence ensues as she
begins to mock her rival, turning the song from one of lament, to
one of celebration. The B side of the single ‘Lions of Chiaroscuro’
begins with Zara’s soft vocals and is soon carried by animated
organ riffs and Nick Woodmansey’s untamed drumming – doing justice
to Reid’s original work. As trumpet – by Ahmed Abdullah (the
composer of the track who also played on the original version), is
introduced and actuated by the organ, adding to the verve of the
song, all held together by Zara’s vocals. Produced by Emanative,
this track is exclusive to this 7” and is as much an experiment in
sound as it is an ode to Steve Reid, who continues to inspire a new
generation of Jazz musicians. This release is extremely limited,
and available only on Saturday 21st April at all reputable record
emporiums Worldwide! All proceeds from the sale of this 7” will be
donated to the Steve Reid Foundation.
