Los Angeles Jazz Duo Black Nile to Release Debut Album via World Galaxy/Alpha Pup Records
'Sounds of Color' LP lands May 17.
Black Nile consists of brothers Aaron and Lawrence Shaw, two multi-instrumentalists born and raised in LA with an acute understanding of music theory, improvisation, and the foundations forged by the pantheon of jazz giants. They cite Kamasi Washington, T.D.E, Nipsey Hussle, Tha Dogg Pound, Vince Staples, Terrace Martin, and Thundercat as a few of their influences, and label their music “The music of now.”
Sounds of Color LP was recorded, mixed, and mastered at Daddy Kev’s Cosmic Zoo studio. Alongside the announcement, the brothers have shared “Jyro.” The track is dynamic in its compositional framework and experimental in tonality, shading subtle additives over a constantly evolving drum section, with simmering horns and keys.
Sounds of Color LP lands May 17, with a stream of”Jyro” below, and album pre-order here.
