Press for Retro Future

“Jesse Fischer plays with astounding energy; creative ideas seem to issue forth from his hands to his instruments at a geyser-like rate. But he and his young band, Soul Cycle, are at their best when they show restraint, letting a rhythm drive its way toward some resolution.”
— DownBeat

“Jesse Fischer’s new album Retro Future takes us back into the timeless sounds of jazz-funk and soul, while commanding elements of electro, hip-hop and African influences.”
JazzTimes

“Jersey-bred, Brooklyn-based keyboardist composes sleek funk, a lá Jeff Lorber, but possess a delicate touch like Chick Corea, all while leading his agile road band, Soul Cycle. His chops behind the keys are only surpassed by his prowess as a producer, arranger and engineer.”
Revive Music

“The music is continually expanding into new horizons, and few are as sumptuous as the one Soul Cycle mines. The heavy (if occasionally jittery) grooves are foundations for lyrical, gorgeous blossoms of melody and sound.”
