About The Album
The album was recorded in New Orleans, a mere seven months after Pangman underwent a second double lung transplant surgery.
“I kept it private that I was rejecting my first set of lungs, but with this newest transplant I feel amazing, and wanted to get right back to singing, and come clean about my health struggles.”
New being the theme, it represents both a new chance at life, but also a shock of new things. New co-producer Andrew Gilchrist recorded Pangman in New Orleans, using new musicians from the city where jazz was born.
“I wanted to test myself as a singer and bandleader by taking this record someplace different, physically and sonically. This new session has a slightly different soundscape, no drums, the funky bass saxophone, and an almost entirely new band. I think it’s groovy and very swinging.”
