About the album

With longtime collaborators, keyboardist Jeff Jenkins and Ghanaian drum legend Paa Kow, trumpeter Brad Goode creates an imaginative, hard-grooving soundscape on The Unknown, his 19th solo release. As Goode's collection of originals unfurl, his free-flowing aesthetic creates new areas of intensity and exploration. Paa Kow’s fluid ideas and percussive dynamism melds with electric bassist Seth Lewis to provide an active undercurrent for Goode's trumpet to spar with. He balances the set with some unexpected tune choices from the pop music vault, including arrangements on Michel LeGrand's "The Windmills of Your Mind," "Jóia" by Caetano Veloso, and Janis Ian's "At Seventeen."
Mit seinen langjährigen Mitstreitern, dem Keyboarder Jeff Jenkins und der ghanaischen Schlagzeuglegende Paa Kow, erschafft der Trompeter Brad Goode auf The Unknown, seiner 19. Solo-Veröffentlichung, eine phantasievolle, hart-groovende Klangwelt. Während sich Goodes Sammlung von Eigenkompositionen entfaltet, schafft seine frei fließende Ästhetik neue Bereiche der Intensität und Erkundung. Die fließenden Ideen und die perkussive Dynamik von Paa Kow verschmelzen mit dem E-Bassisten Seth Lewis zu einer aktiven Unterströmung, mit der Goodes Trompete sparren kann. Er gleicht das Set mit einigen unerwarteten Stücken aus der Popmusik aus, darunter Arrangements von Michel LeGrand's "The Windmills of Your Mind", "Jóia" von Caetano Veloso und Janis Ian's "At Seventeen".

Michel Legrand

Michel Legrand has made his fame and fortune from writing for films, but he has done significant work in jazz on an occasional basis. In 1957, he arranged a set of Dixieland and swing standards for a French orchestra (recorded on Philips), in 1958 he used three different all-star groups for the classic Legrand Jazz (with such sidemen as Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Phil Woods, Herbie Mann, Bill Evans, Ben Webster, Art Farmer, and others), in 1968 he recorded a strictly jazz set with a trio and Legrand has written for albums led by Stan Getz (1971), Sarah Vaughan (1972), and on several occasions, Phil Woods. Several of his songs (such as 'What Are You Doing the Rest of Your...
