Intimate new EP Ibrahim from The Great Divide

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - CAMBRIDGE, England - Aug 05, 2016 - New-Zealand-born, London-based jazz artist Gerald Clark (aka The Great Divide) teams up with an eclectic line-up of musicians to bring this impressive and intimate new EP Ibrahim.

The EP’s three pensive and melancholy tracks each explore the feeling of being caught up between the ‘old world’ to and the new, feeling a loyalty to the traditions of the past, but unable to fully embrace the value system of the present.

The record includes performances from well-established names including esteemed trumpet virtuoso Byron Wallen, guitarist Neil Taylor (who has worked with the likes of Tears for Fears, Robbie Williams and Chris De Burgh), jazz composer Alex Roth (who has worked with Alice Zawaski and contributes guitar) and West End vocalist Daniel Fletcher (stars in Rock of Ages).

Iconic progressive rock vocalist Robert Wyatt meanwhile sings and contributes tenor horn on the title track ‘Ibrahim’.

As Gerald explains: ‘Robert liked a jazz album I made 3 years ago. He gave it as one of his ‘albums of 2013’ in an interview. I frequently hear his voice in my head when I’m writing, so I wrote to him and asked if he’d consider it and fortunately he did.’

The EP is set to be released on Gerald’s own label The Interrupting Sheep on 19th September.
