New Orleans Drummer Adonis Rose Releases First Live Recording on Storyville Records

NEW ORLEANS – September 21, 2020 – Grammy Award-winning New Orleans drummer Adonis Rose is scheduled to release his latest album Adonis Rose Piece Of Mind Live At Blue LLama, on September 25, 2020, on the historic Storyville Records Jazz imprint. The album, recorded live last summer at the Blue LLama Jazz Club in Ann Arbor, MI, features a stellar line-up including Tia Fuller (alto saxophone); Maurice Brown (trumpet); Sasha Masakowski (vocals); Miki Hayama (piano/keyboards); and Jasen Weaver (bass).

Piece of Mind is Rose’s first released live album. While it was recorded in the late Spring of 2019, he feels the project is being released at a pivotal time amidst today’s turbulent backdrop. Music, he feels, transmits a powerful energy that is vital, and it can forcefully portray one’s expressions of freedom and celebration, love and liberation, camaraderie, expression, empathy, and change. Rose states, “The bandstand is a safe place to address difficult issues, and we were able to transcend the space and provide the audience with a heartfelt unique experience.”

The live recording idea culminated from an exchange of ideas between Rose and Blue LLama’s Artistic Director, Dave Sharp that took place during the design phase of the club. It became apparent early on that the Blue LLama Jazz Club would be a unique and intimate performance space, and a perfect opportunity to assemble an A-list group for one of the club’s first live recordings. From that point forward, Rose created the group’s concept, which was inspired by the VSOP Quintet from the late 1970s, and started selecting the musical repertoire. The collective’s focus would be both touring and recording, and he knew synergy would be paramount in forming the group’s overall dynamic and sound. Rose selected artists with whom he had collaborated with, and who had also collaborated previously amongst themselves. The result was four sold out shows that transmitted an uncanny energy and fluidity throughout each evening of music. Rose is very pleased that the group could create the sound and aura of his vision, and is grateful to have captured the intensity and artistry with the live recording. “The energy in the room during our shows was electric from start to finish. This is a special group of musicians and I’m excited about upcoming opportunities to tour the world performing this music!”

Adonis Rose Piece of Mind – Live at the Blue Llama will be available on September 25, 2020, via all major distributors and digital platforms. Please find more information via links below:
