All things Jazz

Chip Wickham – La Sombra


We're only a few hours away from President-elect Trump losing the "elect" bit, which, as we all know, will be the beginning of the End of Times. However, we have seven reasons to be cheerful anyway: seven wonderful tunes divided over two sides of one piece of black vinyl stuck in a cardboard sleeve. Its title is La Sombra, it's the first album by Chip Wickham, and it's out on Friday, January 20th.

Instead of telling you how truly fantastic the album is, we'll just show you what others are saying about it.

"I'm a massive Chip Wickham fan" – Craig Charles
"This is coming from the outside, I was like whooooa, easy – Chip Wickham! Blowing hard – they got it right!" – Gilles Peterson
"I love this record" – Matthew Halsall
"Can hardly wait for this release, Chip Wickham is THE jazzing man of the moment" – Paul Murphy
"Helll yeah, I've been bumpin' this" – DJ Lefto
"This is my kind of jazz… think Harold Land and Bobby Hutcherson 1968 and you'll not be far off the mark" – Eddie Roberts (The New Mastersounds)
"Fxxing love this" – Eddie Piller (Acid Jazz)
"Love this album and couldn't turn it off" – Dean Rudland
"All tracks show an incredible depth, feeling and soul. Will be on my playlists for years to come" – Dr Bob Jones
"Beautiful stuff – played it out last night and it sounded fantastic" – Tim Love Lee (Tummy Touch)
"Really fantastic playing and composition. Wickham has a classy touch that makes his vintage influences fresh and vital sounding" – Tomas Palermo (Forward Ever)
"Slingshot is quality, can't wait for the album" – Mark Further In Fusion
"Chip Wickham doesn't want to play at inauguration. Very unfair!" – The Donald

And now, run to your local record pusher and ask for a copy, or pick on up from our online store. If the apocalypse is coming, we might as well have a proper soundtrack to it.

Estamos a pocas horas de que el presidente electo Trump pierda la parte de "electo", lo que, como todos sabemos, será el principio del Fin de los Tiempos. Sin embargo nosotros te damos siete razones para celebrar: siete temarracos del demonio divididos por dos lados de un vinilo metido en una portada de cartón. Se llama La Sombra, es el primer álbum de Chip Wickham y sale el viernes 20 de enero.

En vez de ponernos en modo autobombo a saco y decirte lo fantástico que es el disco, te enseñaremos lo que otros están diciendo por ahí:

"I'm a massive Chip Wickham fan" – Craig Charles
"This is coming from the outside, I was like whooooa, easy – Chip Wickham! Blowing hard – they got it right!" – Gilles Peterson
"Recomendado para los que disfrutan viajando sin moverse del sofá y gustan del juego de la seducción. Un trabajo disfrutón para alimentar los sentidos" – Jesús Bombín
"Un inglés ha firmado el disco de jazz que estábamos esperando que se publicase en España, jazz para una nueva generación que no entiende de ortodoxias y celebra guiños a clásicos de la pista de baile o a artistas con soul, como Camarón. Chip es bien"  – Javi Bayo
"I love this record" – Matthew Halsall
"Helll yeah, I've been bumpin' this" – DJ Lefto
"Fxxing love this" – Eddie Piller (Acid Jazz)
"Beautiful stuff – played it out last night and it sounded fantastic" – Tim Love Lee (Tummy Touch)
"Gran álbum el último de Chip Wickham!" – Makala
"Es una maravilla!" – Ezequiel Lodeiro
"Chip Wickham doesn't want to play at inauguration. Very unfair!" – The Donald

Y ahora corre y pídele una copia a tu tienda de discos favorita o píllate una en nuestra tienda online. Si viene el apocalipsis, más vale ponerle una banda sonora que mole.
