With pianist Emmet Cohen on Mack Avenue release Future Stride to be issued on 29 January 2021 are bassist Russell Hall, drummer Kyle Poole, trumpeter Marquis Hill and saxophonist Melissa Aldana. A trio treatment of 'Dardanella,' a song that dates back however in a very different vocals incarnation to at least 1920 and whose later versions most relevantly include a dazzling solo piano treatment by Art Tatum in the late-40s, is streaming ahead of Future Stride's release.
