New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
and Cécile McLorin Salvant are among the artists to contribute tracks to Relief, a compilation of previously unreleased music to benefit Jazz Foundation of America
(JFA), due November 12, 2021.
Redman's track "Facts," from the sessions for his 2018 Grammy-nominated Nonesuch album Still Dreaming, with cornetist Ron Miles, bassist Scott Colley, and drummer Brian Blade, was released today.
All net proceeds from Relief will go to JFA's Musicians' Emergency Fund, which provides direct financial support to musicians in need during a time of uncertainty.
Also on the album are tracks from Jon Batiste, Kenny Garrett, Herbie Hancock, Hiromi, IRMA and LEO (Esperanza Spalding and Leo Genovese), Charles Lloyd, and Christian McBride.
Relief will be available as a two-LP 180-gram vinyl set, on CD, and digitally. You can pre-order the album at jazzfoundation.org.
