Darren Barrett was the 1997 winner of the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition and is widely heralded as the next important trumpeter/composer to come on the scene.

“I have wanted to make a project like this for a while, but the timing wasn’t right. Donald Byrd, being my mentor, has always instilled a forward thinking outlook, as he always did for himself. My previous recordings as a leader, ‘First One Up’ and ‘Deelings’, showcased traditional skills in contemporary jazz and jazz composition. But now I felt that it was time for something new. Jazz, Funk, Fusion, Hip-Hop, Soul – call my music whatever you like. I just call it good music. The whole process of making this recording has been an invaluable experience to me. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it.”
– Darren ‘Wren’ Barrett
