Album Of The Week: Chip Wickham – La Sombra

chip wickham - la sombra
Via Lovemonk

Translated from Spanish as ‘The Shade’, Chip‘s debut album drops after a 25-year career touring, recording and experimenting across three decades of jazz, funk, soul, hip-hop, Latin and electronica. La Sombra is a monumental record for Chip as it symbolises the moment he stepped out into the light as a director of his creations with freedom to explore his roots, express and tell his version of jazz and pay testament to his heroes Roland Kirk, Yuseef Lateef & Harold McNair. The first essential jazz album of 2017.
