Trumpeter Rick Braun’s upcoming CD will only be available at his Web site and at live shows.
Sessions: Volume 1 is the first album to be released on Braun’s new Internet-based record label, which Braun started earlier this year after he broke ties with his label, Warner Bros. The album was recorded live in the studio in an attempt to capture the energy of a live show and features 11 songs from Rick’s catalog, in addition to a new song called “TGIF,” which features saxophonist Dave Koz and keyboardist Rick Braun.
Songs include "Groovis," "Marty's Party," "Notorious" (with saxophonist Richard Elliot), "Night Walk," “Grazing in the Grass” and "Philadelphia" (with guitarist Jeff Golub). Rick’s studio band on the album consists of Jimmy Roberts, Mitch Foreman, Randy Jacobs, Andre Berry, Rayford Griffin and Luis Conte.
