“You’ve gotta have the right intuition, the right sound, you’ve gotta know how to blend with people sound wise, personality wise. It’s a very hard band to vibe with if you’re not with it.”
Cochemea joins award-winning guitarist/producer Eric Krasno on his special new podcast series. Presented by Osiris Media, ERIC KRASNO PLUS ONE sees the renowned musician hosting a one-of-a-kind interview series exploring the lives and work of some of his closest friends and musical collaborators.
In this episode of Plus One, Krasno welcomes saxophonist and composer Cochemea Gastelum, whose 2019 album All My Relations is one of Krasno’s most played records of the year. Cochemea made his mark as a member of The Dap-Kings, the potent funk and soul band behind the late great vocalist Sharon Jones. He’s also played with artists from Amy Winehouse to Run The Jewels, always experimenting with effects and other sounds you might not expect from a sax player.
Cochemea brings that same experimental ethos to his solo material, drawing inspiration from his native roots and incorporating Navajo melodies, Sanskrit prayer, and Mexican Huapango rhythms with jazz and funk arrangements to produce a record that is truly one of a kind.
Upcoming episodes of Plus One include Phil Lesh, Dominic Lalli (Big Gigantic), Nigel Hall, and more.
