With longtime collaborators, keyboardist Jeff Jenkins and Ghanaian drum legend Paa Kow, trumpeter Brad Goode creates an imaginative, hard-grooving soundscape on The Unknown, his 19th solo release. As Goode’s collection of originals unfurl, his free-flowing aesthetic creates new areas of intensity and exploration. Paa Kow’s fluid ideas and percussive dynamism melds with electric bassist Seth Lewis to provide an active undercurrent for Goode’s trumpet to spar with. He balances the set with some unexpected tune choices from the pop music vault, including arrangements on Michel LeGrand’s “The Windmills of Your Mind,” “Jóia” by Caetano Veloso, and Janis Ian’s “At Seventeen.”
