Tour name: Church
Mark de Clive-Lowe continues to build on the success of his CHURCH series in NYC, moving to (Le) Poisson Rouge on Thursday, April 11th. Previous installments have featured talented artists, including Questlove, Rich Medina, DJ Spinna, Jose James, N’Dea Davenport, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Jaleel Shaw and Jean Grae performing to capacity crowds.
CHURCH is a whirlwind mix of live jazz, sampling and a DJ set. Fast becoming the discerning music-lovers’ and musicians’ event of choice, don’t be surprised if you spot the likes of Master at Work Louie Vega or soul legend Leon Ware in the audience; Chris “Daddy” Dave, Marcus Strickland, James Genus or MC John Robinson on the stage and the likes of The Gaslamp Killer or Geology on the decks. The first live set showcases the jazz side of MdCL, blending jazz history, groove explorations and classic trio interplay with resampling, electronics and live remixing. As the first set draws to a close, the guest DJ takes over the soundtrack while the tables and chairs are cleared away for MdCL to flip the script with the second set – a unique blend of live electronica and live remixing – the jazz club colliding head to head with the dance floor.
