Album Description

The Sencalar/Glassman Quintet is excited to release their debut album, “Realization.” This album is the result of a collaboration between the two leaders, Altin Sencalar and Chris Glassman. The two wanted to write music that identified their time as growing musicians while in school. The album symbolizes a cathartic experience that connects with the listener reminding them of a time of growth within their life. The album features some of jazz music’s veterans like Rodney Whitaker, former Jazz at Lincoln Center bassist, Roy Hargrove, Kenny Garrett, and Michael Dease, trombonist for David Sandborn, Christian McBride Big Band, among others. Rising stars Addison Frei, Zachary Adleman, and Nathan Borton also make important contributions. The album is inspired by the bebop tradition but incorporates modern textures and arrangements. The jazz standards on the album are arranged by active performers, Steve Davis, Randy Napoleon, Jason Hainsworth, and Joseph Herbst. The album pays homage to the great tradition and pushes the envelope with the unorthodox front line of tenor and bass trombone.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
