ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Two years ago, we started meeting for weekly practice sessions with the simple aim to get better at making music. Over time, we developed into a full-time, highly driven young jazz band out of New Orleans. We are excited to finally document our progress and record our debut album, aptly titled, “This Is Who We Are.”

The music we create could be described as contemporary jazz, because individually and collectively, we are trying to create a sound that reflects who we are at this moment. However, we are each steeped in a rich tradition. We have been lucky enough to play with some of New Orleans’ legendary elders, and on any given day, Session members can be heard playing in some of their groups. Drummer Darrian Douglas plays regularly with the likes of Ellis Marsalis and Germaine Bazzle, while trumpet player Stephen Lands can sometimes be heard at New Orleans’ famed Preservation Hall. In fact, you can often find the entire rhythm section of the Session making up three quarters of Jason Marsalis’ Vibraphone Quartet. In short, while we are a modern jazz group, we not only respect jazz’s historical traditions, but actively learn and play them!

We have put our heart and soul into this project, and believe we will produce a noteworthy album. After nearly two years of playing, practicing and even living together, we’re ready to show the world “This Is Who We Are”!
