Her is the new ambitious release from Alan Leatherman. While still drawing upon the Jazz roots that propelled him on his critically acclaimed, charting release Detour Ahead, Alan has masterfully strung together an eclectic collection of songs across varying genres that have influenced him. Alan takes a refreshing approach to soul, blues, and funk all through a jazz lens, held together singularly by the reality that “Good Music, Is Good Music” no matter the genera.
The new work features seven originals (Co-written with Brian Usifer & Rick Germanson), and three covers completely re-imagined. And while Alan has a number of musical influences, the new release has drawn specific comparisons to the likes of Jose James, Jamie Cullum, and Gregory Porter.
