International touring trumpeter Volker Goetze’s new quintet album, Bridges, unites musicians from three continents. Joined by Josh Myer, bassist for Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, they explore new ground, stretch creative improvisation, and build musical bridges over thousands of miles. Goetze has brought together top-tier Grammy Award ®–winning and nominated musicians who have toured with the best jazz musicians. The original compositions are rooted in west African and contemporary New York jazz, creating a unique cross-cultural musical experience.
