USA: Will Caviness Sextet — A Walk (Cellar Live 2015)

"A Walk," the debut album of trumpeter/composer Will Caviness, is a soulful kind of record. Featuring a 3-horn-led sextet of young, yet seasoned New York players, the music is swinging, contemplative, deep, and dynamic. Mr. Caviness, a Memphis native living in New York, possesses a rich, smoky tone on both trumpet and flugelhorn that is simultaneously beautiful and edgy. Combined two saxophonists and a rhythm section, the result is a brand new take on a classic jazz instrumentation.
