THE RIPPINGTONS f. Russ Freeman - True Stories

THE RIPPINGTONS f. Russ Freeman
True Stories
Peak Records / Entertainment One Music

With the release of the ultra-melodic, super high energy and daringly eclectic TRUE STORIES, The Rippingtons featuring Russ Freeman celebrate an amazing thirty years (and 22 albums!) as a seminal force in contemporary jazz – while finding fresh ways to move the genre forward. The GRAMMY nominated ensemble, launched by the guitarist/composer in the mid-80s, comes full circle with new tracks featuring the soulful, lyrical vibe of original saxophonist Brandon Fields. Beyond the trademark soaring pop/rock funk fusion the band is known for, the collection features a powerful flamenco venture into the Spanish tradition of Andalusia, a return visit from R&B great Jeffrey Osborne and the band’s first ever extended drum solo by Dave Karasony. No lie – these TRUE STORIES will keep Ripps fans as riveted as ever! ~JONATHAN WIDRAN
