The very first jazz album was released 100 years ago: The Original Dixieland Jass Band with ‘Livery Stable Blues’. That’s why AB will be paying extra attention to jazz for a year. From contemporary classics to musical troublemakers who are inspired by jazz, to the latest incredibly headstrong jazz generation from local soil.
Josef Leimberg’s CV is without a doubt amazing. The trumpet player & composer wrote music and took on the role of producer & guest musician for the likes of Kamasi Washington, Kurupt, Bilal, Erykah Badu and Kendrick’s Lamar’s LP ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’. His debut ‘Astral Progressions’, was released at the end of 2016 and on it he unites 70’s jazz fusion, world music, R&B and hip-hop. Just like Yussef Kamaal, Sons Of Kemet … Josef Leimberg is a part of a movement of musicians who are rediscovering and reinventing jazz and fusion. He defines himself as a worthy composer & caretaker of the deep musical arts. ‘Astral Progressions’ only scratches the surface of his distinctive views on jazz.
