Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Abram Wilson

Ride! Ferris Wheel To The Modern Day Delta

2007-03-12

Ride! is Abram Wilson’s second effort for Dune Records. This trumpeter/vocalist has received acclaim for this contemporary Jazz album, which features a 10-piece line-up that is actually three bands in one: The Delta Blues Trio, The Londorleans Brass Band, and the Abram Wilson Sextet. Ride! is a concept album that tells the tale of Albert Jenkins, a young musician from Mississippi in line to take over a Jazz club that has been in the family for generations. Albert has other ideas though, he is intent on leaving home to tour with a Hip-Hop band. Wilson tells the story of Albert through Jazz, Blues, and Hip-Hop. Seth Allgaier
