Josh Lawrence’s skillfully efficient trumpet stylings prompt audiences to punctual engagement with the enjoyable message of "Call Time." Employing a wide palette of tones and sounds, Lawrence is a gifted instrumentalist who makes a clear statement of purpose with his stunning musicianship and stalwart leadership on his fourth album for Posi-Tone. Lawrence's thoughtful melodicism shines throughout the session with the able assistance of some of the hippest cats on the scene today, including the collective genius of bassist Boris Kozlov and pianist Art Hirahara, the drumming excellence of Jason Tiemann, and scintillating sounds of saxophone sensation Willie Morris. With this latest release, Lawrence not only confirms his status as one of the biggest rising stars in jazz today, but also shows that he is clearly a visionary musical artist for jazz fans to mark time by for years to come.
