THE A LIST

New album Available on Warner Music

Kevin Field's latest album The A List is now available via Warner Music NZ.

A natural progression from his previous 2012 release Field of Vision, The A List is a collection of sophisticated, polished compositions with a wide range of influences from ’70s and ’80s soul and funk to acoustic jazz, latin and even a hint of disco!  

The A List features Matt Penman, one of New York’s first call bass players, having featured on over 100 major label recordings, Grammy award winning Sony Jazz guitarist Nir Felder and drummer Obed Calvaire who holds the drum chair with the crème of jazz and R&B artists including Wynton Marsalis, Mary J. Blige and Musiq Soulchild. 

The album was recorded in New York at Brooklyn Recording studios and mixed by Aaron Nevezie at The Bunker Studio in Williamsburg. Returning to NZ, Kevin invited vocalists Clo Chaperon and Marjan Gorgani to add overdubs to several tracks and percussionist extraordinaire Miguel Fuentes also contributed his distinctive sound.

... soulful, funky and relaxed. Kevin plays his heart through the music and communicates his good feeling to both band and listener.
