  • Description

    'Parallel Motion' from jazz fusion legends Yellowjackets, is a true testament to the longevity and resilience of a band who debuted over 40 years ago.

    Consistently reinventing themselves through elevated instrumentation in their signature electro-acoustic soundscape, the current lineup consisting of Bob Mintzer (tenor & soprano saxophone/EWI), Russell Ferrante (piano/keyboards), Will Kennedy (drums, keyboards) and Dane Alderson (electric bass, MIDI Sequencing) showcases a collective at their prime.

    This album features 9 new original compositions and guest vocalist Jean Baylor (4x GRAMMY® Award Nominee of the Baylor Project and R&B duo Zhané) on "If You Believe."


    "The performances on this album have that seamless amalgamation of masterful technique with a deeply-felt soulfulness, all overlaid by an at times almost delirious sense of joy. It all goes, for this listeneranyway, to fill the chest with excitement and prompts an abiding smile of gratitude that music like thisexists and has been made available to flow from my hi-fi speakers." - LondonJazz News

    "It's melodic, easy on the ear and superbly executed by a group of musicians who are masters of their instruments...If you enjoy the jazz music of artists such as Grover Washington, Lee Ritenour and David Sanborn, then the Yellowjackets will fit nicely with you. I certainly enjoyed it." - Jazz Views
