"There were a lot of great entries for the Jazz promotion contest, but Frank Herzberg's was a clear standout. We loved the original rhythmic melodies and the entire ensemble was outstanding." David Avery, President/Powderfinger Promotions
FRANK HERZBERG TRIO – “HANDMADE”
A large number of musicians are operating in the jazz orbit these days, but few of them possess the artistry, vision and sense of purpose of bassist Frank Herzberg. Handmade, the new release from the Frank Herzberg Trio is a showcase for their devilishly mercurial music and it has been turning quite a few heads. No less an authority on Brazilian music and jazz than the great Arnaldo DeSouteiro has hailed Handmade, calling it – “Arguably the best jazz album of the year”. Now, with the release of Handmade, music fans the world over will have the opportunity to hear this one-of-a-kind trio at the height of their powers.
“We are so happy with the response to our joint contest with Powderfinger Promotions on the WIN A JAZZ RADIO PROMOTION. The quality of the music and artists that entered the contest was exceptional. We had entries from several countries and with the winner from Brazil. AirPlay Direct is the global platform for radio and artists and this contest adds to that confirmation. Frank Herzberg Trio is an amazing group with a terrific new record that we believe all of our jazz station members will download and play it. I want to thank all of the artists who entered and this is only the first of many jazz contests to come. Michael Harnett, President/AirPlay Direct
