John Carroll Kirby ‘Dance Ancestral’ LP
‘Dance Ancestral’ is the latest addition to the prolific artist John Carroll Kirby’s fast-growing and distinctive body of work.
Kirby debuted on Stones Throw in 2020 with ‘My Garden’, an album influenced by jazz, New Age and early music, which he synthesised into his unique and instantly recognisable sound signature. Since then, he’s released the instrumental piano album, ‘Conflict’, the ‘Cryptozoo’ original feature film soundtrack, and the jazz fusion suite, ‘Septet’.
On his fifth release for Stones Throw in two years, composer and keyboardist John Carroll Kirby adopts a more electronic sound.
‘Dance Ancestral’ was produced in collaboration with Canadian artist Yu Su and features Laraaji on the lead single.
John Carroll Kirby recently toured the UK and Europe, and he will return in August to perform at Gilles Peterson’s We Out Here festival.
