"Real Feels" New Ulm CD Release

"Electrifyingly new and strangely familiar at the same time...with his mix of modern sounds and old-fashioned feeling, Raymond is steering jazz in the right direction." (Downbeat Magazine)

Labeled "a prepossessing young trumpet player…" (New York Times), New York-based and Minnesota native jazz trumpeter

John Raymond's new album - "Real Feels" - brings together a unique band that includes guitarist Gilad Hekselman and drummer Colin Stranahan. With Raymond at the helm solely on flugelhorn, this bass-less group puts a fresh spin on familiar songs, many of them stemming from Raymond's roots as a Midwesterner. From American folk songs like Woody Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land," to classic hymns such as "Amazing Grace," to Lennon & McCartney's "Blackbird," to Thom Yorke's indie-rocker "Atoms for Peace," the music undoubtedly evokes a nostalgia for the past. However, "Real Feels" is far from being antiquated; the band's improvisational, free-wheeling, keep-you-on-the-edge-of-your-seat kind of approach to the music makes the songs feel entirely relevant. Combine that with the deep camaraderie the trio shares and "Real Feels" radiates a kind of fun and authenticity that distinguishes it from anything else.

This performance is part of the group's 22-city CD release tour across the country. CDs will be for sale as well as premium quality "Real Feels" tees, zip up hoodies, tote bags, stickers and "Real Feels" temporary tattoos. Don't miss it!
