    Listen: Jeff Parker's "Suite for Max Brown" Reviewed on NPR's "Fresh Air with Terry Gross"

    Jeff Parker's new album, Suite for Max Brown, is "a demonstration of how jazz mixes it up with other musics these days," says NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross music critic Kevin Whitehead. "Parker invokes his days as a crate-diving club DJ, a job where you can juxtapose beats from all over as long as they serve or creatively stem the flow." You can hear the complete review below.

    Suite for Max Brown—named for and dedicated to his mother, who is pictured on the cover—debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Current Contemporary Jazz Chart upon its release on International Anthem and Nonesuch Records late last month. To pick up a copy, head to your local record store, Bandcamp, the Nonesuch Store, Amazon, and iTunes, and listen on Spotify and Apple Music.

    Jeff Parker will tour the United States starting in Los Angeles on March 5, with stops in Portland, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York, Miami, and Knoxville, where he performs at Big Ears Festival. See below for details and tickets or visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.
