While the year may be coming to an end soon, there’s still several exciting album releases to look forward to. ///// EFFECTUAL, the new solo album from renowned jazz drummer and percussionist Jamire Williams, is one of them. Slated for a December 2nd release via Leaving Records, ///// EFFECTUAL was pieced together over three different recording sessions and locations, as the press release explains, “all of which embodied a specific time period and environment to help translate a feeling within Williams”. He used a kit from the 19th century in one session, a digital kit in a second one, and a hybrid of both in the last session. With Carlos Niño on production duties, the album also features longtime collaborator Chassol, and Miguel Atwood-Ferguson.
For a taster of the drumming magic Williams has in store for us, take a listen to the extraordinary first single ‘Children Of The Supernatural’.
