If you didn’t know by now…..The Julian Hartwell Project’s debut album is out now! Available on all major digital outlets where music can be found, the first effort from the JHP showcases a distinctive blend of high-energy original jazz music by composer and arranger Julian Hartwell and this band of up-and-coming players. Cinematic, Funky, Evocative, Soulful, Swinging…this all-original debut promises to inject new lifeblood into the contemporary jazz scene and set the tone for a bright future for this promising group known shorthand as “The JHP”.
What a few people are saying about the debut release…
“Well worth a sample and repeated spins, The Julian Hartwell Project offers a splendid slice of straight ahead jazz delivered with a fresh new sound…a gifted pianist leading a group of young talented players in their first recording together, this is one musical project that begs for an encore.”
– Ed Blanco,All About Jazz
“This is feel good music that doesn’t get too unapproachable like so many jazz groups get, making music that appeals not only to the head, but to the heart as well…It’s a fresh take on original jazz music, that somehow manages to sound like something old school AND brand new at the same time.”
-Mark Weber Music Blog
“…A broad range of musical perception.”
– Dick Metcalf ‘Doctor Jazz,’ Improvijazzation Nation Blog
