High Pulp - Mutual Attractions Vol . 2 (Digital)
RELEASE DATE 06/11/2021
Emerging from their “Funk Church” jam sessions in 2017 at Seattle’s legendary Royal Room jazz club and premieres on KEXP, High Pulp stepped out on the world stage last year with their first volume of ‘Mutual Attraction,’ which took listeners on a spiritual jazz journey via covers of Pharoahe Sanders, Sun Ra, and Alice Coltrane.
Continuing their psychedelic fusion of hip-hop, jazz, funk, and soul, ‘Vol. 2’ features three more interpretations of deep cuts all recorded live in a single take, with the octet broadening their selection to an international group of inspirations.
From the soaring post-Tropicalia soul-jazz of Brazil’s Arthur Verocai, to Japanese jazz-fusion stalwarts Casiopea, to the oft-sampled albeit obscure French jazz-funk greats Cortex, High Pulp displays unique poise and top-class musicianship that goes far beyond their short few years together, all the while channeling the free spirit and notions of the original composers.
