After years of touring, recording and performing with the likes of Jill Scott, Bootsy Collins, Mike Phillips, Liv Warfield and the DooDoo Funk All-Stars, soul/jazz/funk trumpeter Farnell Newton is Ready To Roll! The modern funkster and educator is part of a bubbling Portland music scene that boasts some of the finest young soul/jazz/funk artists in music today. Let’s just say Portland artists are kicking butt and taking names when it comes to building their scene and taking it Worldwide!
On Ready To Roll, Farnell’s newest album, the trumpeter delivers a rich batch of funk, soul and contemporary jazz with a signature style of playing we’re becoming more and more familiar with. Farnell can smooth it out just as well as he can funk it up! Farnell has also invited several of his friends along for the ride! Guest vocalists include Ashley Jayy, Donyea Goodman, Jerrod Lawson, Tony Ozier and Cleveland P. Jones.
