Contemporary Jazz trombonists are few and far between …at least to me. So when I find one who is able to present a modern version of Jazz without making it cheesy, I pay attention. Canadian trombonist and composer, Carsten Rubeling‘s Volk // People is a really great album for those who want to get into Jazz but don’t really know where to begin. Carsten injects a lot of soul into his tracks, at times conjuring wonderful horn lines reminiscent of Dwele on songs like Seattle 2001 and Great Divide.
At less than 30 minutes this release should go by quickly, but if you’re like me you’re pressing rewind to make sure you heard the fantastic intricacies he includes in his compositions.
Just $4 for this great work of art; a purchase is a no-brainer!
