Fresh Sound Records has been synonymous with West Coast jazz since its inception back in 1983. Through the years, we have recorded many of the men who built the scene, outstanding soloists who have become part of the jazz history we know and love. Now we are back to the roots with this new branch of our New Talent series, dedicated to today's emerging generation of stalwarts, all hailing from California.
To start this exciting stage, we are proud to present one of the young lions who is working to make it a reality, the talented pianist Joshua White. His individual style and fresh jazz conception will pull you in, and we hope you enjoy his debut album at least as much we do. Welcome to the label, Joshua!
"Joshua has immense talent... I was impressed by his daring and courageous approach to improvisation on the cutting edge of innovation. He is his own man."
"Joshua is not only an astounding technician and fluid improviser, he draws deeply on the full history of the music in its myriad forms and expressions in his own personal way, something particularly remarkable given his relatively young age. He’s the kind of person often categorized as a phenomenal, even freakish talent, the kind of musician who not only impresses with his ability and artistry but who makes one begin seriously considering the possible reality of reincarnation!"
