Produced by renowned guitarist Josh Smith, the album also features appearances by Nigel Hall (Lettuce) and Raquel Rodriguez, as well as co-writers Amber Navran (Moonchild) and Spencer Day.

The Back Burner EP will be released on July 19th, 2019.

“A stunning player, straddling blues, jazz and rock.” - Guitar Player Magazine

“The Back Burner by the incredibly talented Jamey Arent, is one of those EPs that demand peak volume on a quality sound system. Arent is not only a master of guitar, he is a master of groove. And all six tunes, a blend of guitar-driven blues, funk, jazz and rock, are stellar–not just the musicianship but the songs themselves.”- Rock and Blues Muse

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
