SCCD 31780 Jason Palmer Sextet “Places”
Trumpeter/composer Jason Palmer has surprised audiences with each of his new releases full of fresh concept and amazing execution.
This his 4 th release is no exception. All Jason originals here are inspired by the places he has visited during his numerous tours throughout the world including the two towns closest to his heart: his birth place High Point, North Carolina and his current home town near Boston, Roslindale.
Jon Ross of Downbeat remarks of Jason , “ Palmer is an exciting player – achieving pinpoint focus in his attack one minute, turning his concrete bebop lines into caramel, sliding through pitches and bending them to his will the next. If Palmer's music stays close to home, he should go far ."
