Mr. Fingers' new band includes the Eglo Records vocalist and the Parisian jazz pianist.
Heard's management tells RA the new Mr. Fingers live trio includes Eglo Records mainstay Fatima. Fatima put out her second album, the RA-recommended And Yet It's All Love, last year, and the UK-based vocalist has collaborated with the likes of Floating Points, Dâm-Funk, Scratcha DVA and Funkineven, among others. Rounding out Heard's trio will be the Parisian jazz pianist and house producer Paul Cut, who has played live with Kerri Chandler and put out a 12-inch on Chez Damier's Balance imprint in 2018.
Heard will play live with Fatima and Paul Cut in Tbilisi, Sydney, Glasgow, Rotterdam and Croatia—where he returns to Dimensions Festival—beginning in May, with more dates to be announced soon. His current schedule is listed below.
Heard returned to his Mr. Fingers alias in 2016 and put out a new album, Cerebral Hemispheres, last year. For more on Larry Heard, check out our narrated short video, How Larry Heard made house music deep.
