JAZZ RE_FEST ARTIST DD

 

 

DIGGS DUKE

Flying in especially for JAZZ RE:FEST, Diggs Duke is an artist we’ve admired for a long time and have really wanted to showcase on a Jazz re:freshed platform… we are now seizing that opportunity with both hands!

The sound of Diggs Duke’s music can best be characterized as a fresh, yet familiar interpretation of the bond between soul and jazz. Within the last year, the American vocalist, instrumentalist and composer has released a steady stream of quality music that’s been dominating playlists from LA to Indonesia. Shortly after the release of his debut EP, “Gravity,” as well as several ambitious singles, the music was swiftly placed into the rotation of taste-makers across the US and Europe, including Gilles Peterson in the UK and Lefto in Brussels. 

 

 

Mentored by alumni of the bands of Max Roach, Cecil Taylor and Frank Foster, Duke’s jazz ideals blend well with the hip-hop, r&b and latin music of a 90’s upbringing. The result is a stellar mix of raspy vocals, fascinating horn arrangements and adventurous song forms, never losing sight of the perfect groove. (www.dromnyc.com)

 

 

Winding horn lines and electric guitar passages. Vocals used sparingly over a transition. Djembe played in a tug-of-war with a drum machine. This is the sound of Diggs Duke’s music, which can be characterized as a fresh, yet familiar interpretation of the bond between Soul and Jazz music.

 

 

On August 23rd 2014, you will not be disappointed.
