Video Premiere: Marc Cary Blesses The Breeding Ground With “Taiwa”
Pianist/composer Marc Cary is featured in the latest video from HighBreedMusic and The Breeding Ground NYC — The World’s First Recording Lounge‘s new series. Joined by bassist Rashaan Carter and drummer Russell Carter, the three musicians join forces as they perform a head-nod inducing rendition of Cary’s modern-classic,”Taiwa.”
Originally appearing in Cary’s Motema release, Focus, the live in-studio iteration of “Taiwa” takes more of an electronic approach from its predecessor and sees Cary employing his feathery touch and lush chord voicings on the Rhodes. The faint shimmer reverb on Cary’s electric piano also doesn’t hurt as the tastefully dialed-in effect adds an interesting texture not found in the original recording. Trumpeter JS Williams also makes an appearance towards the end of the video as he helps propel “Taiwa” into the stratosphere.
