Keyboardist Jesse Fischer is set to release his next album, Day Dreamer, on September 25 on Ropeadope Records. It’s an album that sits back a bit elementally, Fischer as more contemplative,as his press release states, as he approaches fatherhood. What results is a less is more sound that may be some of his strongest work yet. The album opener, “Nomads”, features Leon ” Foster” Thomas on steel pan adding a little extra spice to the jam. Check out its video after the jump.
