Lazarus – David BowieSteve Ley
Blackstar, David Bowie's 25th studio album was released on his 69th birthday just two days prior to his death. It was deliberately created and timed as a parting gift for his adoring fans. Lazarus, the second single from the album, features master modern jazz drummer, Mark Guiliana, laying down a simple, propulsive rhythm which drives the melancholic vamp. As the song progresses, he adds intensity through variations and expressive fills while maintaining the core rhythm.
Vale David Bowie. Thank you for your immeasurable contribution to the world of music.
