Walter Kemp’s latest release is quite the musical treat! The Walter Kemp 3 International Superband Black Whole’s debut album, expertly mixed and mastered by Dave Darlington, captures the sound experience we all may recall from the Hallwalls concert in the Cinema Room. Featuring Grammy-winning violinist Scott Tixier, woodwind virtuoso Brent Birckhead, bassist Rishon Odel, and percussionist Allan Mednard, this ensemble pushes the boundaries of traditional jazz with some amazing cosmic freewheeling. “De Facto,” led by Kemp, showcases the group’s soulful energy. Congratulations to Walter Kemp, III!
