City Lights Ahead
"You owe it to yourself to check out this WONDERFUL new recording by emerging trumpet/flugelhorn artist Nathan Samuelson! It absolutely has something for everyone - from the funky dance groove of "City Lights Ahead," to the soulful "Georgia," to the Latin-jazz stylings of "No More Blues," it never misses a beat!! Nathan, with his gift for melodic interpretation, guides the listener through all the tunes with a lush and intimate trumpet and flugelhorn sound. The song selection is top shelf - the playing is first rate - the arrangements are killer - and the production is simply outstanding! This is most certainly a ''feel good' album that you need to experience again and again!"
