Parallel Motion is a true testament to the longevity and resilience of a band who debuted over 40 years ago. Consistently reinventing themselves through elevated instrumentation in their signature electro-acoustic soundscape, the current lineup consisting of Bob Mintzer (tenor & soprano saxophone/EWI), Russell Ferrante (piano/keyboards), Will Kennedy (drums, keyboards) and Dane Alderson (electric bass, MIDI Sequencing) showcases a collective at their prime. This album features 9 new original compositions and guest vocalist Jean Baylor (4x GRAMMY® Award Nominee of the Baylor Project and R&B duo Zhané) on “If You Believe."
As one of jazz’s most influential and loved groups, the Yellowjackets have maintained an extraordinarily high quality of musicianship. Never failing to rise to the numerous inevitable challenges of lineup adjustment, the band has recorded 25 albums, received 17 GRAMMY® nominations, performed countless sold-out tours, and enjoyed worldwide critical acclaim throughout their storied 43-year history.
