New Releases from Brooklyn Jazz Underground

From the Brooklyn Jazz Underground website:

The Brooklyn Jazz Underground is an association of independent artists with a shared commitment to creativity and community.  Through cooperative efforts, the BJU aims to build a greater awareness of original music emerging from Brooklyn NY.

These two most recent releases from this incredible collective are absolutely fantastic.  In fact, everything I've heard on their BJU Record label is remarkable in the writing and the performances.
