There are certain local musicians who will always have ties to Charleston no matter how far away their musical careers take them from the Lowcountry.

From Darius Rucker and Mark Bryan of Hootie & the Blowfish to members of the much missed Jump, Little Children, there is no shortage of musical talent in this town.

Go ahead and add Charlton Singleton to that list.

Singleton has worn myriad musical hats here in Charleston, including playing with bands such as Skwzbxx and Plane Jane, as well as serving as an adjunct professor at the College of Charleston.

Through it all, jazz has remained his first love. As the conductor of the Charleston Jazz Orchestra, Singleton has put on some jaw-dropping shows around town.

Now, with the release of his debut solo album "The New Deal," Singleton takes the next step in his already impressive music career.

Recorded at Charleston Sound and mixed by MJ Fick, the six songs on the album show the amazing range Singleton has as a musician.

Singleton wrote four of the songs on the CD, and styles, including the rapid-fire be-bop on the title track, the jubilant "Sweets' Sweets" and a cover of Johnny Green's "Body and Soul," which sounds as if it belongs in a film noir thriller of yesteryear.

Singleton teams his trumpet up with the likes of Tommy Gill on piano, Mark Sterbank on saxophone, Reggie Sullivan on bass and David Patterson on drums.

Everything about the album, from the classy packaging to how pristine the music sounds through earphones, makes this ambitious debut something locals will look back on fondly when Singleton gets the call to play at Lincoln Center with Wynton Marsalis.

Even if jazz isn't your thing, still check this one out.
