Brian Blade & The Fellowship Band return to Blue Note Records for the release of their album Landmarks on April 29th. The group was recently in France for the St. Emilion Jazz Festival and luckily for us, so were cameras. I can’t say anything other than just watch and enjoy this one. You’ll be glad you did, and then on April 29th, purchase the album. You can pre-order it at the links below.

Brian Blade and the Fellowship Band will be releasing Landmarks, on April 29th, or April 15th if you rock with vinyl. This will be another in a string of excellent releases from Blue Note Records. This is Blade’s first release on Blue Note since 2000’s Perceptual. Coming off the incredible release Mama Rosa via Verve, the Shreveport, LA native has teamed back up with Chris Thomas, Jon Cowherd, Myron Walden, Marvin Sewell and Melvin Butler known collectively as The Fellowship Band. If “He Died Fighting” is any indication of the new album, I certainly can’t wait for April to get here.
