Fiona's Comments

Composer, trumpeter and Princeton Professor Anthony Branker http://www.anthonybranker.com/ + Ascent (alto & soprano saxophonist Mark Gross tenor saxophonist Ralph Bowen pianist Jonny King bassist Kenny Davis drummer Donald Edwards) presents his 4th album Together. Unity is the MP3 of the day, chirpy but not cheap. Fantastic Jazz Fact If you're not old enough to remember 1965 take Larry Young's album Unity for a spin also. #jazzeducational #bringtheendstothemiddle

About the Album

Composer and Princeton Professor Anthony Branker brings together saxophonists Mark Gross & Ralph Bowen, pianist Jonny King, bassist Kenny Davis, and drummer Donald Edwards for a powerful, swinging quintet date on his fourth Origin Release. Driven by an infectious rhythmic sensibility, lyrical melodies, and sophisticated harmonic underpinnings, this recording of soulful performances is another outstanding addition to Branker's fast growing and musically rich discography.
