The featured album this week is the new release from Ken Fowser

Fowser reflects upon the ephemeral aspects of nature to uncover a series of inspirations hidden in the broken fragments of our cultural existence on his latest release with a captivating program of new compositions. Fowser continues to demonstrate a strong and well refined vision for his own music as a leader and composer that is both emotionally engaging and entertaining. With a delicate balance of modernity and classic aesthetics, the album is insightfully straight forward, refreshingly melodic and full of bright moments for the ears of jazz fans everywhere.

In between tracks from Fowser there are some other recent releases and also a dip back in the archive
