Chris DiGirolamo at Two for the Show Media have been showering us with some cool jazz lately. Indeed, I was knocked out of my chair this weekend by trumpeter Suresh Singaratnam‘s new CD, Lost in New York. It’s a mindblower of mood-swings from mellow to scorching. Listen to the cut Fortress of Sound and feel the full force of a jazz-blasting juggernaut.
Listening to Lost in New York was like spending a weekend in Manhattan, from Central Park to SoHo—a manic subterranean soundtrack that captures the city’s pulse.
Featured on the album in addition to Suresh : Charenee Wade: vocals; Jake Saslow: tenor saxophone ; Jesse Lewis: guitar; Fabian Almazan: piano; Jamie Reynolds: piano ; Fraser Hollins: bass; Lee Pearson: drums.
