"Made for the dancefloor but with a deep, spiritual yearning, 'Snake Eyes' is a bold statement" Clash Magazine
"So, so good" Gilles Peterson
"Manchester A Lister" Observer/Guardian
"the album rides the wave of fabulous British jazz that is busting out this summer-definitely my favourite jazz album of the year so far" Eddie Pillar
Chip Wickham brings music from his latest album Shamal Wind, mixing globetrotting, spiritual jazz expeditions with hard-won schoolings in the UK Jazz scene. On this new album, the sax, flute player and producer’s second long-player for Madrid-based imprint Lovemonk, Chip continues the rapid ascent, which started, with his debut, La Sombra, in 2017. No one-hit wonder, Chip has two of the biggest selling UK Jazz vinyl albums in the last two years as well as critically acclaimed live performances with Jazz FM voting his London Jazz Festival show as one of the outstanding shows of the festival. Chip spent his formative years in Manchester’s close-knit jazz scene working with top UK Jazz artists such as Matthew Halsall and Nat Birchall. A diverse artist who’s recent collaborations include Dwight Tribble, Lack of Afro and Scrimshire. Now, after years globetrotting between Madrid and the Middle East, he divides his time between the UK and Spain.
