Aaron Whitby, “Cousin from Another Planet”

JAZZIZ presents the premiere of pianist Aaron Whitby’s title track from his debut album as a bandleader, Cousin from Another Planet, due out June 21 on Ropeadope, partly inspired by his life journey as a Londoner living and working in New York City. “The music is inspired by my young son’s cartoonish antics and the lyrics are tongue-in-cheek autobiography sung by Lisa Fischer and my wife and partner Martha Redbone.” It also features Charlie Burnham on violin, Fred Cash on bass, Gary Fritz on percussion, Rodney Holmes on drums and Keith Loftis on tenor sax.
