Throughout his career lasting several decades, German multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer YORK has been an in-demand sideman on saxophone and flute, live and in the studio for established heavyweights such as Randy Crawford, Phil Collins, Mousse T., Jazzkantine or Bahama Soul Club.
But time does not stand still, especially for creative minds! After all those years on the sidelines, new impulses made their way to the light, and a few sweaty as well as emotionally fulfilling months later, YORK is now launching his own longplayer: The Soul Jazz Experience Vol. 1.
“With a Bit Kurkuma” is the first single extracted from the album, and is a danceable 60s groover with “non-lyric” vocals by Yane Singh where you notice her slightly Indian roots. In addition, the lush horn section with a yorktypical baritone sax solo and a short battle between DJ and Fender Rhodes round off the song for extra spice. Enjoy the music with a bit Kurkuma…!
