Drummer Ben Perowsky, keyboardist John Medeski and saxophonist Chris Speed have released a new album, titled Upstream.
Perowsky has recently been drumming in the TONY-winning musical Hadestown on Broadway. In his 30-plus year career, he has played with Rickie Lee Jones, Walter Becker, Tegan & Sara, Dave Douglas, Steven Bernstein and Trixie Whitley.
The album was recorded in 2014 in Woodstock, N.Y., but due to various personal circumstances, Ben could not release the record at that time. Throughout the album, the trio pays respect to various idols such as Wayne Shorter, Miles Davis, Jaco Pastorius and Paul McCartney.
Upstream is out now and can be purchased here.
