    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.

    Lianne La Havas's new, self-titled album has made the Best Albums of 2020 lists of the New York Times and NPR Music. Its songs are "brimming with poised musicality," writes the Times's Jon Pareles. "Graceful melodies, supple guitar syncopations, sophisticated harmonies and a voice that can sparkle with anticipation or cry out in pain capture all the hope and heartache of her narrative." NPR's Suraya Mohamed says: "The songs on this album, La Havas' third and perhaps best, reveal how her sophisticated artistry is made of not just brilliantly crafted lyrics, but a rich musicality, full with gorgeous harmonic voicings, catchy rhythms and soulful melodies."
