Trumpeter and composer drops his debut full-length solo album - Astral Progressions

This is a powerful record in the canon of 21st century music, continuing on the momentum Leimberg achieved on the Kendrick Lamar Grammy Award winning album 'To Pimp A Butterfly' creating a unique hybrid state of jazz fusion, world music, R&B and golden era hip hop instrumentalism. 

This premier album features an array of innovators and game changers in modern progressive music - Kamasi Washington, Bilal, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Kurupt, Terrace Martin and Miguel Atwood Ferguson.

Here at SOTU we're all in agreement that this one qualifies as an early front runner for album of 2017!

Highly Recommended!!!!
