Sneaking out after midnight

Mark Lockett

Jazz heavyweights Joel Frahm and Orlando Le Fleming bring a fresh, joyful, thoroughly modern approach to this debut Rattle outing by Kiwi drummer, Mark Lockett.

The concept behind the original compositions on Sneaking Out After Midnight was largely inspired by Mark’s love for the wonderful music of American alto saxophonist, Ornette Coleman, particularly the music he created with Don Cherry, Charlie Haden, and Ed Blackwell. Mark also drew upon his time studying with the great Ari Hoenig, and the fusion of these two influences forms the thematic and melodic basis of this album.
