In the lexicon of soul A is for Aretha. Bringing together Hammond B3 player and pianist Bruce Katz (Gregg Allman) and saxophonist Joel Frahm (Jane Monheit, Brad Mehldau), Project A gives the Queen of Soul's music the royal treatment. Backed by guitar, horns, 2 bassists and 2 drummers, Katz and Frahm lead this rare summit of Jazz, Soul and Blues. Legendary bassist Jerry Jemmott (Aretha Franklin, King Curtis) joins the session, propelling the music forward with his celebrated soulful playing. The music is sophisticated, soulful, moving and funky, a befitting tribute to its inspiration.
