Trumpeter and singer-songwriter Bria Skonberg recently released, on Sept. 23, her first album on OKeh Records, Bria, featuring jazz standards plus five original songs. Supported by some of New York’s top musicians, including saxophonist-clarinetist Evan Arntzen, drummer Ali Jackson, bassist Reginald Veal, vibraphonist Stefon Harris and pianist Aaron Diehl, Skonberg goes for “a sense of allure” on her new album, “music that is both curious and exotic, playing with tension and storytelling” and credits producer Matt Pierson with her quest “to fuse my love of classic jazz with worldly rhythm, percussion, contemporary songwriting and more,” according to a press release.
