Pianist/keyboardist Jesse Fischer’s latest album, Day Dreamer, is his finest yet and he’s continuing to find new places to go as an artist as he works through this material. His latest work is as a good and proper music video director, putting together the video for “Refuge” featuring Sarah Elizabeth Charles on vocals (side note– her own album, Inner Dialogue, is likely one of the best vocal albums of the year). It’s still heavy on the performances as opposed to his usual live in the studio videos, but it’s still a good forward move. Check it out after the jump.
