Misty is the follow up album to the Chet Baker Tribute EP, and it showcases The Jazz Jousters appreciation and love for Hip Hop Jazz and Jazz music as they pay homage to the late great American Jazz musician, Bob Brookmeyer. It features a blend of talented international producers such as Mr. Moods, Mr. Moods & Erik Jackson, Diligent Fingers, Skinnista, Joe Davies, DRTYDRDZ, Gadget, Elyon, Es-K, B 3 N B I, and Blue Buttonz
The Misty album derives from a song title, of the same name, produced by Bob Brookmeyer in 1964 off the ‘Bob Brookmeyer and Friends‘ album who played alongside Stan Getz (Tenor Sax), Gary Burton (Vibraphone), Herbie Hancock (Piano), Ron Carter (Bass), and Elvin Jones (Drums), and who together formed the “Bob Brookmeyer Sextet.”
The closing track of Misty – Give It To You Live features vocals from Emma Louise, Gadget, and Awakening Dawn, which makes this the first Jazz Jousters project to incorporate some of the vocal artists within the Millennium Jazz online community.
