Noah Young Fuses Jazz, Funk, and Rock with New Album: Splinter
Gathering together an uber-talented cast of musicians, Young’s presents his new genre-fusing album, Splinter. Comprised of eight diverse tracks, Young’s musicality brings out the funk, grooves, and eclectic improvisations of the jazz and funk styles while challenging the compositional barriers to represent elements of modern music. The genuine crafty construction of the album leaves no question as to the reason Young is one of the most sought after bassists in New Orleans. The highly anticipated fusion album was introduced by the singles “Testify” (featuring bass legend, Chris Severin) and “Six Million Ways To Die”, which was featured on the Spotify curated playlist State of Jazz. Best known as a founding member of jazz/funk band Naughty Professor, Young has stayed busy in his 8+ years of activity in the New Orleans music scene composing, recording, and performing with numerous artists, including: David Shaw, George Porter Jr., Chali 2na, Big Freedia, Marcus King, Ivan Neville, Eric Bloom, Mike Dillon, Sasha Masakowski, Nigel Hall, Russell Batiste, Dee-1, The Stooges Brass Band, Leroy Jones, and many more.
