JAZZIZ Discover Playlist: Week of October 12, 2020

Vibraphonist Joel Ross blends conceptual storytelling and musical creativity on his sophomore album, Who Are You?, produced by Walter Smith III and due out October 23. Here, he is joined as ever by his Good Vibes band and harpist Brandee Younger on five tracks. “This record is a culmination of our maturing – as people, as a band, within the music – it’s about figuring out who we are,” says Ross.

“3-1-2,” a newly released track from the album, is featured in this week’s Discover Playlist. It joins a roundup of tunes that also includes new work from Jamie Cullum, Robert Glasper, Terrace Martin, Fred Hersch and Peter Bernstein.

As writer Whitney Balliett once said, “Jazz is the sound of surprise.” Our Weekly Discover playlist will take your ears to new places with the latest sounds from your favorite artists — and some you should definitely get to know. Catch up on albums that came out over the weekend, newly released singles and other tunes that may have flown under your radar.
