Adult Children is a full length instrumental jazz album informed by Hard Bop and inspired by Highlife. Arrangements feature Latin percussion and layered guitar accompaniment. The music is an interpretation of the current sociopolitical culture; song titles reflect aspects of certain stunted personalities. “[Vince has] an approach that is more soulful, yet laid back in a way. The influence of Latin music adds more fuel to the fire.” (Homer Jackson, Philadelphia Jazz Project). Adult Children started as an assortment of collectively improvised grooves involving bass and percussion. The resulting recording session was divided into distinct tracks, each organized into tangible musical forms. From there, harmonic accompaniment was applied and melodies were composed. Vince performs on trumpet, guitar, and bass, and is joined by bassist Ben Basile, percussionists Ben Diamond, Corey Mark, and Alec Meltzer, and guitarists Joe Heider and Drew Parker.
