About the Recording

We invite you to take a seat in preparation for a sonic dose of musical brilliance. The Walter Kemp 3 International Superband Black Whole's highly-anticipated first single is enjoying station play and offering tour-goers an unforgettably immersive sound experience. Mixed and mastered by Dave Darlington, this eclectic track experiments with diverse sonic exchanges and dynamic musical interplay. Pushing the boundaries of traditional instrumentals, the ensemble yields a sense of cosmic freewheeling. Kemp (piano, Rhodes, and Viscount organ), GRAMMY award-winning improvisational violinist Scott Tixier, maverick woodwind master Brent Birckhead on alto sax, clarinet and flute, bass prodigy Rishon Odel and Allan Mednard, (featured on NPR Tiny Desk June 28th) a NYC fixture on the percussion scene, add tonal richness to the group's deconstructivist musical approach. To be clear, Black Whole is an attention-grabbing ensemble that's, way ahead of its time. "Kemp leads "De Facto" in no uncertain terms. The 5-person unit locks tight, grabbing at the soulful fertility of the Earth below them; floor to the ether– It's no wonder why the composition was selected to premiere the award-winning journalist Ta-Nehisi Coates' literary debut at BABEL for The Water Dancer."

Brief Band Bio-
When do we hear silence? What should a sound, sound like? Who mandates freedom within the form? These, and other questions are the impetus for Black Whole. No strangers to the national and international jazz scene, the ensemble performs SOLD-OUT shows at leading jazz venues and festivals. Grounded by the roots of swinging, soulful syncopation,

Pushing the boundaries of traditional instrumentals, the ensemble yields brave experimentation and an electrifying sense of cosmic freewheeling.

The ensemble has an ever-evolving style, delving deep within themselves to seamlessly reconnect jazz to its roots, while consciously and simultaneously working to uproot it. To be clear, Black Whole is an attention-grabbing ensemble that's, way ahead of its time.

Sonic excitement on an eclectic musical scale and joy-filled performances on every rhythmic twist and turn is what I have witnessed, as their audience gratefully applauded their inspired show. (Van Taylor)
