Tenor Saxophonist Lawrence Clark Releases His Sophomore Album Inner Visions Featuring Jeremy Pelt and Duane Eubanks on the European Jazz Tribes Label
New York-based, tenor saxophonist Lawrence Clark will officially release his new album Inner Visions on September 20, 2019, on Holland’s Jazz Tribes label. The album will be distributed globally and available on all major music platforms; Clark celebrated the release last month with a special performance at The LetLove Inn in Astoria, NY.
Inner Vision is a follow up to Clark’s self-released debut album Forward Motion (2017), and features trumpeters Jeremy Pelt and Duane Eubanks with David Bryant, piano and Rhodes; Darrell Green, drums; and Joris Teepe, bass. It was recorded at Tedesco Studios, Paramus, NJ and mixed and mastered by Alex Geurink at Studio West Hoogland, The Netherlands. The album represents Clark’s journey both musically and spiritually and pays homage to one of his biggest inspirations with whom he played for many years, Rashied Ali. Of Ali, Clark states, “Rashied was not only my mentor but also my good friend, like family. This album is a dedication to him and all my heroes.” Another significant influence of Clark’s is John Coltrane, and the selections “Blew” and “Freedom” were written with the jazz master’s open and free artistic philosophy in mind.
