Composer and multi-instrumentalist Jeff Parker's “Max Brown, Pt. 1” is available via a newly formed partnership between International Anthem and Nonesuch Records. The song was produced by Parker alongside Paul Bryan, who also plays bass; also featured are Josh Johnson on alto sax, Nate Walcott on trumpet, and Jamire Williams on drums. It is a sneak peek of Jeff Parker’s new album, due in early 2020. "For all his rootedness in music history, some of Parker’s music actually sound more like tomorrow—if future music can be cobbled together from shards of the past," says LA Weekly. "Parker is dedicated to the jazz tradition and to probing its edges, but he’s unconfined within its bounds."
