Mark McLean CD Release at SubCulture
(Published: May 22, 2014)
Mark McLean celebrates the release of "Feel Alright" at SubCulture on May 28 at 8:00pm.
One of the most dynamic and versatile studio and touring drummers in the jazz, R&B and pop realms over the past 15 years, Mark McLean had a single criterion when it came time to expand his horizons beyond the groove and record his long awaited breakout as a powerhouse composer and lyricist: it had to Feel Alright.
In an industry that often prefers pigeonholing to expansive creative expression, the multi-talented artist – whose credo is “I don’t want to be seen as a drummer, I want to be known as a musician whose instrument just happens to be drums” – breaks all the rules on this eclectic 11 track set, sharing his love for everything from old school soul, down and dirty blues/funk and traditional jazz to Southern folk-pop with a zydeco twist, Rat Pack-like swing, edgy pop/rock and New Orleans brass band music.
