There is a tune on pianist Ray Angry’s debut album, One, titled “Circles Inside You.” Angry’s concentric creativity includes work with Wynton Marsalis, Dianne Reeves, The Roots, Joss Stone and Esperanza Spalding — an interesting mix which alone invites a listen.
Angry performed on Morning Jazz with his Council of Goldfinger band, which includes drummer Eric Harland, bassist Burniss Travis, trumpeter Keyon Harrold and saxophonist and flutist Myron Walden — plus the Angry Horn Section of trombonist Jason Disu, alto saxophonist Andrew Gould, trumpeter Dave Levy and tenor saxophonist Samir “FKAJazz” Zarif.
Ray Angry’s One is the first of four recording projects, each of which will highlight a different musical influence. For more information, visit the album website.
