Joel Frahm

Joel Frahm's May 1st release, We Used to Dance, places him in the company of master musicians Kenny Barron (piano), Rufus Reid (bass), and Victor Lewis (drums). Frahm more than holds his own in showing both the chops and lyricism that has made him an irreplaceable part of so many sessions in his two decades on the jazz scene.

Surrounded by jazz legends, Frahm makes this recording a true “coming out party” for his maturing artistry.
