L.A. jazz pillar Terrace Martin has assembled an all-star collective of top notch musicians including Kamasi Washington, Robert Glasper, Adam Turchin, and dubbed them The Pollyseeds. The collective will release their first album, Sounds of Crenshaw, Vol. 1 on Ropeadope on July 14 and have released the first teaser track from the project, “Intentions”, in anticipation.
The track sways with a bubbly stretch music groove that Ropeadope appears to be dedicated to establishing as a vanguard of modern jazz. With recent quality releases by Turchin, Sidewalk Chalk, and Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah, all in 2017, nothing seems capable of stopping their momentum.
Pre-order Sounds of Crenshaw, Vol. 1 here.
