Some things Alabaster Deplume reminds himself of before a performance: ‘(while feeling the floor under my feet) I am here / (while looking at the waiting audience) I love them.’The spoken-word artist, writer, and saxophonist considers it his job to bring different people together, through a truly unique style of theatrical, poetic jazz-folk. His latest record, 2018’s The Corner of a Sphere, delights in lampooning the best and worst of human nature, from selfish folly to soft-hearted foible. ‘Give me a falafel!’ he demands on single Is It Enough. We’ll have one too, please.
