The Independent Culture

Despite the magical-realist cover and references to Amazonian shamanism and our own "deranged culture", this is actually a very worldly slice of twinkling piano-trio jazz.

Marshall, who trained at Leeds and Amsterdam, has a keyboard style that recalls Robert Glasper's incorporation of R&B grooves, and the excellent drummer Kaspars Kurdeko uses rimshots to echo the feel of digital handclaps on the best track, "Pointer", a delicious slow jam.
