A strut supreme.

“Snake Eyes” by Madrid-via-UK flautist, saxophonist, and jazz multi-talent Chip Wickham gets the remix treatment by Pete Cunningham’s Bristol, UK-based experimental electronic jazz collective Ishmael Ensemble.

 

 

Shakers, cymbals, and handclaps float mid-air as an irresistibly funky bassline takes control of the groove, followed by a measured sax, deep piano chords, and energized, breathless flute blasts.

 

 

Track of the day.
