Pre-order Julieta Eugenio’s ‘JUMP’ now!

It’s pre-order day for JUMP, the debut album from saxophonist Julieta Eugenio!

Julieta Eugenio began her music journey in Argentina before relocating to New York City almost a decade ago. At the height of the pandemic, Eugenio began collaborating with bassist Matt Dwonszyk and drummer Jonathan Barber, meeting regularly to workshop her music. The trio soon developed an intricate trio chemistry forged around Eugenio’s brilliant and insightful compositions. Once it was safe to do so, the group hit the studio and recorded eight originals that cover a range of sentiments, from the introspective “Tres” to the ambiguously funky “Raccoon Tune.” The strength and maturity of Eugenio’s tenor concept comes across on two standards that round out the album; “Flamingo” and “Crazy He Calls Me.” This group takes the tenor-bass-drums trio configuration to new heights, covering a broad sonic palette and cementing Eugenio’s reputation as a composer and saxophonist.

You can pre-order the album on CD and digital here and get the first single, “Efes,” right away. Greenleaf Music subscribers already have the first single in their Bandcamp stream here.
