Listen to the first single from the David Sanford Big Band

We’ve released the first single from the upcoming album from the David Sanford Big Band, A Prayer For Lester Bowie.

“Subtraf” is is a feature for trombonist Mike Christianson who, for at least forty years, has played an extraordinary approach to the blues. In its intended recreation of the Chess Studios atmosphere, the piece utilizes a mostly notated soundscape of extended techniques more commonly heard in the works of modern classical composer Helmut Lachenmann.

You can hear the full track in the Youtube video below or stream it on Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music and more.

Pre-order the album now on iTunes, and Amazon now and get this first single immediately.
