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.

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.
