    Listen: Jeff Parker Releases "Gnarciss," New Track From Upcoming Album, "Suite for Max Brown"

    Composer and multi-instrumentalist Jeff Parker has released a new track, "Gnarciss," from his forthcoming album, Suite for Max Brown, out next Friday, January 24, on International Anthem and Nonesuch Records. The song is an interpretation of Joe Henderson's "Black Narcissus" and follows the recent release of another track, "Go Away," one of nine Parker originals on the album. "Gnarciss" is available to download now with pre-orders of Suite for Max Brown on Bandcamp, the Nonesuch Store, and iTunes, and can be heard below and on Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon.

    Jeff Parker plays the majority of the instruments on Suite for Max Brown and also engineered most it at home or during his 2018 Headlands Center residency in Sausalito, CA. His bandmates, dubbed the New Breed, include pianist-saxophonist Josh Johnson; bassist Paul Bryan, who co-produced and mixed the album with Parker; piccolo trumpet player Rob Mazurek, his frequent duo partner; trumpeter Nate Walcott, a veteran of Conor Oberst's Bright Eyes; drummers Jamire Williams, Makaya McCraven, and Jay Bellerose, Parker's Berklee School of Music classmate; cellist Katinka Kleijn of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra; and his daughter Ruby Parker, who sings on the opening track.

    For tickets to see Jeff Parker perform songs from Suite for Max Brown live in concert in Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York, and Miami in March, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.
