On his new album Retro Future, Brooklyn-based keyboardist, composer, and producer Jesse Fischer weaves together many different strands of futuristic sounds from the past to create a brand new sound that is ahead of its time yet incredibly cemented in the present. The ambitious project ties together jazz, electronic, soul, classical, psychedelia, and world music.
Following up 2011′s independent release, Homebrew (which featured turns from Gretchen Parlato, Stefon Harris, and Sean Jones), Retro Future marks Fischer’s label debut with ObliqSound, and features his tight-knit working group Soul Cycle.
