WBGO features Julieta Eugenio’s ‘JUMP’ in Take Five

Julieta Eugenio‘s album JUMP is featured in this week’s ‘Take Five’ piece on new releases from WBGO.

Nate Chinen says of the album:

Julieta Eugenio moved to New York from Buenos Aires nearly a decade ago, to pursue her masters at Queens College. A tenor saxophonist with a deep, dark tone, she’s been on the scene for a while now, but will make her first full-length statement with JUMP, due out on Greenleaf Music this Friday. The album finds Eugenio in that most exposed of settings, the pianoless tenor trio, with Matt Dwonszyk on bass and Jonathan Barber on drums. Another byproduct of the pandemic, it’s an admirably focused effort that often evokes the calm at the center of a storm — an image easily conjured on “La Jungla,” a polyrhythmic workout whose title refers not to any part of her native Argentina, but rather the concrete jungle of Manhattan.
