Brooklyn-based pianist, producer and composer Jesse Fischer’s reimagination of ‘Saffron Yellow’ brings back early-00s Greenwich Village vibes: Listen

“Bringing together a soft, soulful feel with touches of Folk, ‘Saffron Yellow’ is about the battle not to give in on the things that make us anxious.” Instead, it is about “[taking] a moment to discover the excitement of everything again.”

If you’re looking for a song to uplift your spirit, the ‘Saffron Yellow’ remix of Bryony Jarman-Pinto’s might be one for the books. If you had the pleasurable experience of Greenwich Village’s Luke & Leroy in the 2000s, you danced all night to music that sounds like Jesse Fischer’s well-crafted reimagination. Before my experience, I thought all New Yorkers didn’t dance. I was wrong. “Bringing together a soft, soulful feel with touches of Folk, ‘Saffron Yellow’ is about the battle not to give in on the things that make us anxious.” Instead, it is about “[taking] a moment to discover the excitement of everything again.” Hear the rework by the Brooklyn-based pianist, producer and composer below.
