For the occasion, we have reached Justin Stanton, trumpeter, composer and producer of the outstanding big band Snarky Puppy and proud owner of a solo career that has just brought him to release his debut album, Secret Place, on GroundUP Music.
Our chat started off with his experience as member of a 25-piece outfit and what it means to “record in mass numbers”, then moved to his two most recent discographic efforts with Snarky Puppy and solo project.
Listen till the end, because we have also made room for a quick playlist, recapping some of the most interesting releases of the last weeks.
