These are just a few quotes from the dozens of outstanding reviews for Kind of New. The collaboration between Grammy©-winning producer and keyboardist Jason Miles and trumpet great Ingrid Jensen has been globally recognized as one of the best releases of the past year. 

Whaling City Sound is proud to announce that on Feb. 12, the project will be the first vinyl album release on the label. It was specially mastered for vinyl by Mike Fosenkemper of Turtletone Studios, New York City, and it has that special, warm sound only found on vinyl.

Jason Miles says of the release, “we are thrilled that Whaling City Sound agreed just how special this music and project are, and made the investment as their first vinyl release. These days it is hard to get such a commitment, and we thank them for their belief in the global possibilities of this music.”

Influenced by Miles Davis’s small electric ensembles of the early 1970’s that had Keith Jarrett, Jack Dejohnette, Michael Henderson, Gary Bartz and Airto, Kind of New visits the spirit of the new fusion music that spawned such bands as Weather Report, Return to Forever, Mahavishnu Orchestra, the Headhunters and others. 

After performing at the Blue Note NY, the Berks Jazz Fest, the Hudson Valley Jazz Festival and others, the project now has global representation and is looking forward to performing for crowds at festivals, clubs and other venues around the world. 

The album is available from whalingcitysound.com and all outlets including amazon through naxosusa.com
