DRUMMER POOGIE BELL IN THE STUDIO

Poogie Bell, the eminent funk- and groove specialist, is currently in the recording studio working on his new album. Funk is the big theme of this new production and to underline this the master has invited several illustrious guests: Three of the most influential bassists in jazz history - Marcus Miller, Stanley Clarke and Ron Carter - are in on it. Further guests are the saxophonists Kenny Garrett and Gary Bartz as well as keyboarder Bobby Sparks and guitarist Dean Brown. Poogie’s new album is scheduled for release in May under the LEOPARD label.

WELCOME SHAWN MAXWELL

The American saxophonist and composer Shawn Maxwell will be introduced to the JAZZLINE label with his new release Millstream.

Shawn, whose big heroes are Jackie McLean and Cannonball Adderley, presents himself as a sophisticated representative of a new generation of musicians. The release is scheduled for late March 2020.

THE BRECKER BROTHERS – LIVE AND UNRELEASED

Many have been waiting for this. On the 20th of March it is finally happening. The BRECKER BROTHERS ALBUM “LIVE AND UNRELEASED“ will be released as double-CD and double-LP. As a foretaste of what is to come, here an excerpt from Randy’s introductory notes on this spectacular new release by LEOPARD:

Young and ready to create havoc wherever we performed, we usually left our audiences in tatters...Brother Mike was at the top of his game (well, he never wasn't at the top of his game!) and we were clicking as the Brother Horn Section or 'Hawn' Section as they would say in Long Island. So enjoy this 'long lost' live Concert which brings back to life a lot of pleasant memories of great music, late nights 'on the hang', and many a story a little too risqué to repeat here. As young-musician-fusion-stars, let's just say we made the best of it, (!) and had some unforgettable experiences musically and otherwise, along the way....!
