NEW MUSIC: Nihil Novi By Marcus Strickland

Jun 27, 2016

Miami-born, NYC based 37 year old Tenor Saxophonist, Marcus Strickland creates dense soundscapes on his debut recording for Blue Note/Revive, entitled Nihil Novi, which is Latin for nothing new. The literal title belies the music, which is memorizing at times, reflecting modern sampling and sensibilities wrapped around straight-ahead horn playing. Strickland's Twi-Life includes his Producer and Collaborator, Bassist Me'Shell Ndege Ochello.

On the eve of the limited release of the new Miles Davis biopic Miles Ahead starring Don Cheadle, we've been checking out the incredible original motion picture soundtrack for the film. This is a project that excites us here at Jazz 91.9 WCLK because we stand on the frontline of supporting the legacy of Miles Davis every single day. One must remember that Miles Davis is probably one of the most important artists in popular music, largely due to his prescient nature.
