Album Description

In the Jazz Capital of the World, the Uptown Jazz Tentet offers a swingin' and powerful new release What's Next (Irabbagast Records). The seasoned group is collectively led by a trio of brass masters including Brandon Lee (trumpet) and trombonists Willie Applewhite and James Burton III. The 10-piece sophisticated powerhouse hit the ground running with this one! Release date: October 1, 2020. New York City is a breeding ground for the best jazz players in the world. The cream rises to the top as we find the Uptown Jazz Tentet shifting through a beautiful and expressive set of originals and jazz classics, including In A Sentimental Mood and Infant Eyes. Smoothly riding through moments of soft, fleeting horns to that big, bad brass blast that a group of trumpets, trombones and saxophones render, the release is one to put on, sit back and enjoy the ride. We even hear the simple, yet powerful spirit of Count Basie. The album displays a depth of range, spanning fiery bebop, tender waltzes, swinging blues, and a touch of the avant-garde. "What's Next is an album about optimism and artistic beauty in the face of adversity," say the leaders of the UJT. "We believe that progress depends on optimism, and optimism will always lead to joy. It's that feeling of joy that we brought to this album, and a desire to leave with the listener. As a result, we don't view What's Next as a question, but as a message of hope."

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.
