Trumpeter and composer Leimberg gained a unique level of traction with his work on the multiple Grammy Award winning Kendrick Lamar LP To Pimp A Butterfly and his collaborative resume over the decades consists of producing, writing and feature credits with Snoop Dogg, Erykah Badu, Funkadelic, Dr. Dre and others. Leimberg released his debut full-length album Astral Progressions in October 2016. Influenced by his mother, father and communities of musicians around him, Astral Progressions summarizes the long lasting power of love through sound. Leimberg is part of the movement that’s creating new standards in the exploration of jazz and fusion.
The ensemble will include:
Josef Leimberg – Musical Director / Trumpet Matthew "Honeybee” Little – Keys Tracy Wannomae – Bass Clarinet / Flute / Sax William Logan – Drums Dante Pascuzzo – Bass Anand Bennett – Guitar
