    Mercury is a milestone album that fuses elements of jazz, hip hop, and funk into a seamless continuum that dares to define itself. After an 8-year hiatus, the saxophonist has returned with a new crew consisting of keyboardist Kenny Banks, Jr., bassist Joel Powell, and drummer Kenton Bostick. Mercury also features a gifted array of special guests including Valencia Robinson, Carmen Rodgers, Gwen Bunn, Rasheeda Ali, LotusLove, Kebbi Williams, D-Focis, & Dashill “SunnovahKind” Smith.

    Mercury presents a strong balance of musical exploration and sound architecture. The band reinvent the Donald Byrd / Mizell Bros. classic, “Think Twice” with Valencia Robinson and the Onaje Allen Gumbs’ “Every Time I See You” with Gwen Bunn. Also, new collaborative originals such as “Dark Matter” with Carmen Rodgers, “Paradise” with Rasheeda Ali and “Mercenaries” with Dashill Smith.
