Tight lines from a lady who likes her fishing, Don Scott's inclusions make for a sound as dishy as a John Scofield funkfest. Bite it. #goodbait

About the Album

Two Calls is the incredible new album from Toronto-based trumpeter Rebecca Hennessy. The album, featuring FOG Brass Band, is Hennessy’s first full-length release at the helm, and showcases a culmination of influences from her diverse trumpet career. Hennessy’s writing brings the traditions of New Orleans party brass bands, Balkan folk music, country blues and high-energy jazz-rock side by side in unique juxtapositions. These songs, in all their diversity, evoke her myriad musical and extra-musical influences, bringing a unique mix of modern and traditional jazz with themes of nature. Two Calls delivers a lot of music drawn from natural imagery, especially the title song that features a field recording of two competing birdsongs that she made deep in the Panamanian jungle. Rebecca leads FOG with her characteristically warm trumpet sound and improviser’s approach to the music, recognizable from her successful and eclectic career both in Toronto as the musical director of the Massey Hall Women’s Blues Review and as a staple in several modern jazz outfits including Hobson’s Choice and Way North. Two Calls will be released worldwide on Friday, May 19th, 2017.
