Burnside Album Details
Martin, Barrett Group, Atlas
Former Screaming Trees and Tuatara drummer Barrett Martin returns with a new solo album from his heavy jazz ensemble, The Barrett Martin Group. Atlas is the band's 4th album to date, and this time around the sessions were produced by longtime friend and producer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Screaming Trees). The 13 songs on Atlas are built around Barrett's exotic drum and percussion grooves, which nod to musical influences from around the globe. The album soars with majestic trumpet melodies and elegant piano harmonies, supported by tightly wound bass and guitar and shimmering vibraphone, making Atlas a gorgeous global journey from one of Seattle's fiercest jazz ensembles.
