“…deep-pocket groove…” – New York Times
The Yellowjackets have long been a pillar of the post-fusion jazz world, built around electric grooves and soulful melodies. They’ve logged over 30 years together as a band and garnered 17 Grammy nominations. Their newest album, A Rise In The Road (which debuted at #1 on iTunes jazz charts), signifies the band moving forward with a bracing new approach and a renewed sense of swing. Keyboardist Russell Ferrante, saxophonist Bob Mintzer and drummer Will Kennedy’s many years together results in a telepathic musical conversation. The addition of new bassist Felix Pastorius (son of bass legend, Jaco Pastorius), one of the global pioneering figures of modern jazz bass, adds to the endless list of new possibilities.
