"Heritage" Among JAZZIZ List of 10 New Jazz Albums To Know

JAZZIZ.com takes a look at 10 of the hottest – and sweetest – new jazz albums that will be released in February 2018.

Heritage is the debut album of the all-star American Roots Project, led by composer and saxophonist Owen Broder. As stated on a press release, “The recording offers a stunning new vision of American roots music – from Appalachian folk to early blues, spirituals to bluegrass – through bold and inspired new interpretations envisioned through a modern jazz lens.” Broder was recently named a recipient of the 2018 ASCAP Herb Alper Young Jazz Composer Awards for his composition, “Goin’ Up Home,” which opens Heritage.
