Columbus based jazz group Andrew Hartman and Still Motion have released a new album of the same name, comprised entirely of original compositions. Says Hartman of the music on the CD:
“it’s a wide variety of styles that ultimately fit under the umbrella of jazz. The tracks on the album span Afro-Cuban, Drum & Bass, Funk, Americana and Soca grooves, to name a few.”
The musicians in Still Motion have considerable performance experience, having played throughout the world with renowned jazz artists and organizations. The band and album feature Michael Cox (tenor and soprano saxophone), Ryan Hamilton (trombone), Andy Woodson (electric bass), Chris Guthrie (drums) and Andrew Hartman (guitar).
Andrew Hartman and Still Motion was also recorded and mixed locally at Sonic Lounge Studios in Grove City and mastered at Magic Garden Mastering in Grandview. The album is an independent release, which Hartman says
“meant more limited promotion compared to a record label but also allowed us to follow our vision for the project as much as possible.”
Andrew Hartman and Still Motion has been receiving airplay on Jazz Sunday with KC Jones, Jack Marchbanks and Gail Burkholder at WCBE radio (90.5 FM).
