__________________________

Something Else! is a true celebration of that genre known throughout history as soul jazz. The band plays new and modern arrangements of 1950s and 1960s classics (songs by masters such as Horace Silver, Les McCann, Freddie Hubbard, Eddie Harris), plus original compositions written in the same style.

The band features seven musicians with a rotating lineup selected among the best experts of modern mainstream who love to play the music of their youth wholeheartedly and skillfully.

 They are all masters of their instruments and renowned interpreters of hard bop with strong soul influences: the jazz they play has its roots in tradition but is immersed in the contemporary world. As their leader Vincent Herring says, “the best musicians playing great music and enjoying it thoroughly, which becomes infectious”.

The debut album of Something Else! is due in 2024.

Vincent Herring can boast a glorious career: he has played in the bands of Horace Silver, Cedar Walton, Dizzy Gillespie, Freddy Hubbard, and Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, known as the hard bop academy. He also played in the Mingus Big Band (they won a Grammy Award) and with Carla Bley. He also performed with Wynton Marsalis at Lincoln Center.

Herring first toured as part of the Lionel Hampton Big Band. Nat Adderley noticed him, impressed by how Herring was influenced by his brother Cannonball. Their nine-year musical relationship led to nine albums and touring worldwide year after year.
