Soul Cycle Music presents: Jesse Fischer & Soul Cycle Retro Future Release Party Featuring: Jesse Fischer, piano, keys, vocoder Brian Hogans, alto sax and flute Kenton Bostick, drums Hosted by Nicole Sweeney of WCLK With special guests TBA "Many musicians struggle with pushing boundaries and looking ahead while honoring the past. But for electric pianist Jesse Fischer and his project Soul Cycle, that has never been an issue." -- Shannon Effinger, downbeat.com "Fischer has the unbelievable ability to fuse the more traditional jazz with electronic, soul, psychedelia and world music to come up with a sound that no one else is doing." -- Brent Black, criticaljazz.com On his new album Retro Future, Brooklyn-based keyboardist, composer, and producer Jesse Fischer weaves together many different strands of futuristic sounds from the past to create a brand new sound that is ahead of its time yet incredibly cemented in the present. The ambitious project ties together jazz, electronic, soul, classical, psychedelia, and world music. Following up 2011's independent release, Homebrew (which featured turns from Gretchen Parlato, Stefon Harris, and Sean Jones), Retro Future marks Fischer’s label debut with ObliqSound, and features his tight-knit working group Soul Cycle. Emerging vocalists Rachel Eckroth and Chris Turner are also featured on one song each. The album includes seven originals along with compelling new takes on The 5th Dimension’s “Aquarius”, Jimi Hendrix’s “Electric Ladyland”, and Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide”. A triple-threat as a self-taught musician, engineer, and producer, Fischer has performed, engineered, or produced for Stevie Wonder, Freddie Jackson, Black Moon, N'Dambi, Laura Izibor, Ryan Shaw, Lakecia Benjamin, and Koko Jones. He recently engineered and produced Grammy-award winning Laura Izibor's latest EP, "The Brooklyn Sessions, Vol. 1", which is currently available on Atlantic Records.
