Terrace Martin – Velvet Portraits

Synthesis of the greats like Grover Washington, Bob James, David Axelrod, Smoke (everything), Isaac Hayes (Black Moses), Curtis in this latest joint from musician Terrace Martin.

As a player, he brings a subtle, unencumbered style. Playing for the song.

This album really showcases Martin as an accomplished arranger.

Composition, form and style.

Wait till you get to “Push” oh man that track is liquid fire.

My new favorite.

“Terrace Martin on sax, Curly Martin on drums, Brandon Eugene Owens on bass, and Robert ‘Sput’ Searight on Keys, Velvet Portraits also features appearances from Kamasi Washington, Robert Glasper, Lalah Hathaway, Thundercat, Rose Gold, Tiffany Gouche, Marlon Williams and more.”
