  • Description

    Trumpeter Jason Palmer, on this his fifth album on SteepleChase, pays tribute to the artistry of Janell Monáe, a six-time Grammy nominated American psychedelic soul and R&B singer-songwriter. Palmer launched a series of homage recordings of songs composed or made famous by iconic singers of our time in 2012 with 'Take a Little Trip' (SCCD31750) examining songs associated with Minnie Riperton, which was highly acclaimed by critics and public alike. "What a novel idea - refurbish songs associated with Minnie Riperton into modern jazz explorations. Fortunately, trumpeter Jason Palmer steered clear from the novelty route on this exquisite disc by mapping out a far richer path, marked by subtle interplay, elliptical phrasing and daring arrangements." - John Murph, DownBeat Personnel: Jason Palmer (trumpet), Godwin Louis (alto saxophone), Greg Duncan (guitar), Luke Marantz (Fender Rhodes), Dan Carpel (bass), Lee Fish (drums)
