Album Synopsis: “The Pride album is meant to convey two things. First, the ancestors who are with me in every endeavor I seek to do. I stand upon their shoulders and they support me, advise me, protect me, and uplift me. The second thing is an invitation for the world to see the PRIDE Album, an invitation to join my PRIDE, my tribe, my family. This album displays the struggles of our ancestors, of our people today, yet conveys the desire to also experience fun, beauty, love and affection through traditional and contemporary Jazz.” The album is slated to release on International Jazz Day 2021, a UNESCO led initiative that is the culmination of Jazz Appreciation Month, which draws public attention to jazz and its extraordinary heritage throughout April.
