The Rock - Tuesday Lunch with Abe

Alchemy is defined as "a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination" (OxfordEnglish Dictionary). It's hard to imagine a word that more aptly suits Alchemy Sound Project, a collective in which five esteemed composers and bandleaders - pianist Sumi Tonooka, woodwind players Salim Washington and Erica Lindsay, trumpeter Samantha Boshnack, and bassist David Arend - form a potent ensemble greater than the sum of its parts. A synergy that seems almost supernatural, especially given the far-flung home bases from which these artists converge, is evident throughout Afrika Love, the band's third album which was released on May14, 2021, via Artists Recording Collective.
