self titled


Release date: 10/19/18

Berkeley-based trombonist Danny Lubin-Laden's self-titled solo album encapsulates the experiences from his eight years of living in Brooklyn, and captures the full range of his musical influences, from the United House of Prayer “shout bands” in Harlem, to tracks from the Smithsonian Anthology of American Folk music, to stories and lessons from his teacher, Art Baron, who played in Duke Ellington’s Orchestra. Lubin-Laden assembled a cast of peers and collaborators from his time in New York, and recorded over several days at Knobworld, a studio in Los Angeles. On vocal tracks, Lubin-Laden worked closely with L.A.-based vocalist Ashley Nguyen and bassist-producer Garret Lang, both of whom perform throughout the album, along with guitarist Ari Chersky, pianist and organist Claude Rosen, drummer Adam Starkopf, and Danny on trombone.
