Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Groove Travels is the highly anticipated new album from British trumpeter, arranger and composer Gerard Presencer. Featuring the Danish Radio Big Band, Groove Travels is without doubt his most ambitious and well-executed solo recording to date and it will happily stand alongside the leading voices in contemporary jazz. Over the past 25 years, Presencer has carved out a formidable reputation as one of the most respected trumpeters. He exploded onto the international scene at age 18 when US3 asked him to play the solo part on "Cantaloop (flip fantasia)," and it became one of the biggest selling jazz records of the 1990s. Sophisticated and exciting, Groove Travels is as good as big band jazz gets.
