John's Debut Album Now Availble On All Platforms

"Compelling is the first word that comes to mind in describing John Lake's debut record as a leader. Eight Lake originals, adjoined by three reimagined tunes from the past, comprise Seven Angels. A seasoned studio musician and sideman, Lake knew his time had come. He is joined by five stellar musicians who collectively build a liquid sextet.”

“An original composition dedicated to the late pianist, composer, and bandleader Horace Silver, ‘Pearls of the Tartar’ makes Lake’s love of hard bop plain…Feifke’s introduction sets a mysterious tone, before the full band clears the air with a quirky, grooving affirmation of mambo swing.”
