Greenleaf Music Podcast



The third album from drummer Rudy Royston features a new chamber-like quintet playing music inspired by Royston’s upbringing in Texas.

Flatbed Buggy is a true masterpiece sure to elate the most discerning of jazz aficionados with its unorthodox and novel ideas and its unparalleled level of musicianship.”
 – Sébastien Hélary, Nextbop




Every year for the past few years we have produced a special recording session to be released via our subscription series. Before that, we released special unreleased extras, outtakes, and other discographical oddities. It’s what you will get exclusively when you subscribe to Greenleaf Music.

UPLIFT is our response to the current political and social climate of the United States and beyond. Challenging ourselves to consider how we can pitch in toward positive change, each track released throughout 2018 highlights a specific social cause and references organizations doing important work. The ensemble includes: Joe Lovano on tenor, clarinet, and flute; Mary Halvorson and Julian Lage on guitars; Bill Laswell on bass; Ian Chang on drums and electronics.
