Josef Leimberg - Astral Progressions

Josef Leimberg’s debut album Astral Progressions is a powerful record in the canon of 21st century music. It continues the momentum that the trumpeter and composer achieved on the Kendrick Lamar Grammy Award-winning album To Pimp A Butterfly.

A hybrid state of jazz fusion, world music, R&B and golden era hip hop instrumentalism. Josef Leimberg has created a rich tapestry of sound that fits right in with the resurgence of progressive music in the 2010’s, launching out on his own terms after an impressive career of guest work. The album features an array of innovators and game changers in modern progressive music, including Kamasi Washington, Bilal, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Kurupt, Terrace Martin and Miguel Atwood Ferguson.

Astral Progressions is a record that summarizes the long lasting power of love through sound, and Josef Leimberg is a part of the movement that’s creating new standards in the exploration of jazz and fusion.
