Album Description

The strains of American musical tradition are as deep and diverse as the lands of our forebears. Heritage celebrates that diversity and the different backgrounds that combined to shape an American cultural identity. Each piece on this album draws on some form of American traditional music – bluegrass, Appalachian folk, spirituals, early blues, and others – to connect the dots from America’s musical roots to contemporary forms of improvised music. "Heritage" features six different compositional approaches to this concept, each marked definitively by its composer’s personal story. The collection of pieces is set together in the spirit of art being borne of many parents. Composers: Owen Broder, Miho Hazama, Bill Holman, Alphonso Horne, Jim McNeely, Ryan Truesdell Producer: Ryan Truesdell

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
