New York City, we hope you are ready to attend CHURCH in 2012! Mark de Clive-Lowe’s hugely successful CHURCH monthly series is returning for his residency at Drom, Friday January 6th, with his whirlwind mix of live jazz, sampling and DJ set.
CHURCH is back in session Friday, January 6th and continues the first Friday of every month.
We dug deep into the Giant Step vault to find some gems from the past. Here is the first of the bunch, an EPK for the release of Nuyorican Soul on Giant Step Records. Back then it was common to compile an electronic press kit (EPK) to send out a pre-release - this would help with journalists, retail and radio. Although it was more of an industry tool, we thought you might enjoy seeing it. A lot of the footage and interviews are from the actual photo shoot for the album artwork. The video features interviews with Kenny Dope and Little Louie Vega, Roy Ayers, George Benson, La India, Jocelyn Brown and Tito Puente to name a few.
Keep an eye on this site over the holiday break for more videos from the Giant Step vault.
