Blue to Red, the highly anticipated new album from immensely talented British flautist and saxophonist Chip Wickham, arrives next week. Following the celestially sublime title track, he has shared another offering from the record, ‘Double Cross’. He had this to say about it:
“This is the darkest track on the album, and it represents the feelings of ordinary people who do the right thing and care about the world but are constantly double-crossed by the system that is stacked against them in favour of an ever-powerful minority. A relentless, driving groove with more broken jazz and driven Rhodes to add an extra angry vibe. The flute reflects this with a driven sound and in your face solo that is pure energy! Check out the fantastic drumming of Jon Scott on this track. He is constantly changing and relentlessly driving the track at the same time.”
Take a listen to ‘Double Cross’ below and grab Blue to Red when it’s out on May 8th through Lovemonk Records.
