Fiona's Comments

What a stride! No doubt the go go is a going concern. Transportive.

About the Album

"For The Go Go" is the first track from Baltimore-based pianist/composer Lafayette Gilchrist's powerful new album "Dark Matter." On his second solo recording, Gilchrist draws on the span of jazz history from stride to free improvisation, along with inspiration from hip-hop, funk, and Washington D.C.'s unique go-go sound. Over the course of the album's eleven original tunes, Gilchrist cycles through a wide range of moods and ideas, from deeply personal meditations to socially conscious outcries. "Dark Matter" was recorded live in front of a rapt, intimate crowd at the University of Baltimore’s Wright Theater by acclaimed hip-hop producer Wendel Patrick.
