    Jeff Parker & The New Breed Tour US Behind New Album, "Suite for Max Brown"

    Composer/multi-instrumentalist Jeff Parker & The New Breed—Josh Johnson (saxophone, synth, keyboard), Paul Bryan (bass, synth), and Makaya McCraven (drums, sampler)—begin a six-city, seven-date tour of the United States at Gold Diggers in Los Angeles on Thursday. The shows continue in Portland, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York City, and Miami, culminating with a set at Big Ears Festival in Knoxville, Tennessee, on March 27. See below for details and tickets or visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Jeff Parker’s new album, Suite for Max Brown, released in January on International Anthem and Nonesuch Records, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Current Contemporary Jazz Chart and has received widespread critical acclaim. Pitchfork gave it a Best New Music review, saying: "The veteran guitarist has created an effortlessly detailed album, full of tradition and experimentation that spans generations. It lives at the vanguard of new jazz music." The Quietus says: "It's an album that if you take it at face value will delight, but if you stick around and penetrate its surface, you’ll find one of the most transfixing albums in recent years."

    To pick up a copy of Suite for Max Brown, head to your local record store, Bandcamp, the Nonesuch Store, Amazon, and iTunes, and listen on Spotify and Apple Music.

    Rhiannon Giddens has released "Waterbound," a second track from her upcoming album with Francesco Turrisi, They’re Calling Me Home, out April 9. The song is a traditional fiddle tune first recorded in the 1920s that includes the refrain, "Waterbound, and I can't get home, down to North Carolina," capturing a central theme of the new album: longing for the comfort of home and family in this time of prolonged isolation. The video, which you can watch here, was filmed in Ireland and includes footage from the recording session that took place in a small studio on a working farm outside Dublin. The song and video also feature Congolese guitarist Niwel Tsumbu. Giddens says, “‘Waterbound’ is a song I learned a long time ago and it brings me forcefully home to North Carolina when I sing it, and considering that I am, indeed waterbound, and have been for a long time, it's a rare moment when a folk song represents exactly my situation in time.”

    Joachim Cooder was joined by his father, Ry Cooder, for a performance streamed from the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles on Saturday. They performed songs from Joachim Cooder's Nonesuch Records debut album, Over That Road I'm Bound. "My hope for tonight's performance is: we do something maybe that we've never done before," he says. "I like to let things take their own course and have each show be a little different. So I would like all my things to work and have everybody see something that they haven't seen somewhere else." You can watch the program, which also includes a set from Amythyst Kiah, here.
