Playing Catch Up With 2019

There always seems to be a constant flow of worthwhile new music coming out, so much that it is to be impossible to cover it all within its calendar year. Here are seven notable releases from the last few months of 2019.

Gunn’s Ablazin’
Self Produced

Washington, DC based trombonist Shannon Gunn has several different ongoing projects and she features two of them on this CD, her Firebird Organ Trio and her quintet. In the trio, Gunn sounds smooth and playful over Hope Udobi‘s simmering keyboards while in the quintet she mixes it up with Chris Barrick‘s vibes and Garrett Gleason‘s guitar in a more aggressive and lively manner. The trio tracks are highlighted by Gunn’s double-tracked lines on the funky “Carried Away” and her singing tone on Erik Satie’s “Gymnopedie #1.”
