On Friday, Toronto Jazz artist Thompson Egbo-Egbo released his new single “It’s Not That Serious”. The track is Thompson’s first delivery of 2019, and will appear on his forthcoming album, “The Offering”, set to release on May 24th. You can stream/purchase to the song here.
“It’s Not That Serious is this year’s mantra. It’s not about getting caught up with ourselves and the things that won’t matter a year from today. How do we get out of our own way and move forward ‘cause it’s not that serious.”
“The Offering” follows Thompson’s previous album, “A New Standard”, released in January 2018. The record was Thompson’s debut on the label Entertainment One, and sought to redefine the concept of the jazz standard, and included original takes on Radiohead, Bob Dylan and Laura Mvula tunes. It was recorded in a trio format, with Randall Hall on bass, and Jeff Halischuk on drums, marking a departure from the solo playing for which Thompson had become known. Buy and stream the album here.
