Listening: Shane Endsley “Then The Other”

Not much of a post today. Just a link really. Shane Endsley is a talented NYC-based trumpet player who is probably best known for his role in the NYC/California band Kneebody (or maybe you’ve heard/seen him with Steve Coleman). Shane has a new-ish CD out right now “Shane Endsley and the Music Band – Then The Other.” Only his second as a leader, it’s a good record. But don’t take my word for it, check it out for yourself: http://kneebody.bandcamp.com/album/then-the-other.

The whole thing is streaming in its entirety. And if you like it, you can purchase it. So far my favorite track is “Kings County Ramble.” Shane writes some nice stuff and he sounds great. There’s a little Dave Douglas in his sound and approach, and maybe some Ron Miles on the slower stuff, but really he sounds like himself. Hope you enjoy.
