ONE NIGHT IN ATLANTA the new solo album by trumpeter Josh Lawrence hits iTunes and Bandcamp September 17!

Lawrence celebrates the release with two CD release events at the Philadelphia United Jazz Festival and Somethin’ Jazz Club in NYC.

Take a listen below.

Josh Lawrence, a rising jazz trumpet star, composer, and performer who has recorded with the likes of Erykah Badu and Boyz II Men, is readying a new album, “One Night in Atlanta,” for release Sept. 17, 2013.

The new album features the Philadelphia-based Lawrence in an unorthodox trumpet-bass-drums trio, where he is joined by bassist Chris Riggenbach and drummer Michael de Castro. Employing a warm, fat sound, Lawrence features the trumpet in a way rarely heard on jazz recordings. The result is seven lush, unhurried, and cool tracks, all of which are composed by Lawrence.

“It’s a brave move to record a trio record with trumpet as the lead instrument and Josh Lawrence does it with confidence,” remarked noted jazz pianist Orrin Evans said. “Josh is truly a bright star on the new horizon.”
