Bassist Cai Marle-Garcia is releasing his debut album, Mr. Ears on June 1st, and we have a sneak preview.
Mr. Ears includes saxophonists Tony Woods, Duncan Eagles and Rob Sell, keyboardists Kit Downes (BBC Jazz Rising Star Award 2008, Empirical, Jim Mullen, Dennis Rollins) and Steve Kite, drummers Martyn Kaine (Natalie Williams) and Dan Paton, guitarist Sagat Guirey (John Etheridge, Mark and Mike Mondesir, Robert Mitchell), Freddie Gavita (BBC Jazz Rising Star 2008) on trumpet, and Stuart Semple (Peter Erskine) on percussion.
The album features Cai’s original compositions based on his desire to “bring what made jazz-fusion in the 1970s and 80s so good, to the modern day,” drawing from his influences: Weather Report, Chick Corea, and Miles Davis.
