Talented pianist John Escreet brings an all-star lineup of young lions together on his stunning and intense debut release "Consequences" available now on Posi-Tone Records. Escreet's brilliant and evocative original compositions are presented by his working group featuring Downbeat award-winning alto saxophonist David Binney, Monk award-winning trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire, along with talented newcomers bassist Matt Brewer and drummer Tyshawn Sorey.

"Commitment can be defined as the state of being emotionally compelled. Each note and phrase on this recording is a declaration of John's commitment. He accompanies with passion, solos with conviction, and creates with perspective. John has assembled a group of like-minded individuals with clear commitment to their music. This is a welcome treat for the ears. The ensemble's interplay can be dense and complex as well as sparse and simple. This balance is essential. A new Trans-Atlantic alliance has been formed, and they are exploring a history as well as a future."
