Retired Hammond vs Invaders From Space is the new video from experimental jazz artist and York resident Frank Freeman. As you can guess from the title, it’s a little bit cosmic.
By Graeme Smith
The video takes the form of a 1950s science fiction B-film over which Frank’s free-flowing music sprawls. Though the overall feeling of the track is that of jazz noodling, there are elements of electronic dance and pop in there that makes it feel very accessible. As Frank himself put it, the track started with a piano groove but ended up something other worldly.
As well as making his own music here in York, Frank is also a producer and engineer. I’m glad he’s hit my radar and am looking forward to hear more of his innovative stuff.
