A State of Flow is out on May 3rd through Severn Songs Records
May 3rd will see the release of A State of Flow, the new album from Bristolian electronic jazz outfit Ishmael Ensemble, led by producer and saxophonist Pete Cunningham. Composed within the idiom of Jazz, as the press release describes, the album “stir[s] ambient invocations, club-ready percussive workouts, spiralling grooves, hazy psychedelic electronica and Japanese lyrics.”
Exhibiting a sense of hometown pride, State of Flow features contributions from fellow Bristol-based guests, including vocalists Holysseus Fly and Yama Warashi, as well as trumpet player and composer Yazz Ahmed.
Ahead of the album’s release through Severn Songs Records, Ishmael Ensemble have shared the first single ‘Lapwing’, a track that “evokes walking into a smoky afterhours haunt and finding a session in full, forward motion.” Stream it below.
