Heads up folks, Keep a watch out for an awesome new David Binney recording, Graylen Epicenter that’s going to absolutely knock your socks off and leave your toes still intact for dancing. I was listening to the opening track and heard a sax+guitar melodic unison thing plus piano over a motif that reminded me strangely of a Brian Blade record Perceptual, and sure enough Blade was on drums on that track and the Gretchen Parlato vocal added to the vibe. Gorgeous.
Stay tuned to modernjazz.com for the latest on release notes and performances.
