Bassist, vocalist and composer Brandi Disterheft is joined by some of the most experienced musicians in the world for her upcoming album, billed as her “most accomplished yet.”

The Juno Award winner based in New York has been making a name for herself while playing with some of the biggest names in jazz over the last 10 years, including Harold Mabern, Vincent Herring, Benny Green and Renee Rosnes.

Recently, Disterheft announced the details of her fifth album called Surfboard. She also shared the title track, a tune by the great Brazilian composer Antônio Carlos Jobim.

Arriving Oct. 30 via Justin Time Records, the record features the talents of virtuoso tenor saxophonist George Coleman, definitive Brazilian drummer Portinho and world-class pianist Klaus Mueller. Surfboard features blues and jazz standards along with songs from the Great Brazilian and American Songbooks.
