    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.

    On his Nonesuch Records debut, Over That Road I’m Bound, due October 2, 2020, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Joachim Cooder uses the plain-spoken songs of country-music progenitor and banjo player Uncle Dave Macon as a jumping off point, playing with the lyrics and reworking melodies for his chosen instrument: an electric mbira. Cooder culled songs from Macon’s vast catalog and recorded them with his band and special guests: Ry Cooder, Rayna Gellert, Juliette Commagere, Sam Gendel, Glenn Patscha, Amir Yaghmai, Dan Gellert, and Vieux Farka Touré. The album track “Come Along Buddy” is available today; a video may be seen here.
