About the Album

"The Defender" is the opening track to drummer/keyboardist Gary Husband's Hotwired, with his new band Drive. Featuring trumpeter Richard Turner, saxophonist Julian Siegel and bassist Michael Janisch, Drive combines the acoustic post-bop sensibilities of Tony Williams' latter-day acoustic quintet and Miles Davis' classic mid-'60s quintet with a wholly modernistic edge. Seamlessly integrating synths and electronics, Hotwired reveres the jazz tradition while, at the same time, looking to the future, creating a timeless blend that's undeniably Husband's best project to date as a leader.

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.
